its a minhag to burn clothes in the bonfires of lag baomer. one reason given is that the rashbi and reb elozor didn’t use clothes while they were learning in the cave (they covered themselves with the earth).
i also heard that that the rashbi was on the level of adam harishon before the cheit eitz hadaas (when adam didn’t wear clothes) or something along thise lines.

What kind of a bonfire is that, it looks like its made from a pile of cloth, i assume shaimos type things, but how does it burn like that? wait, isnt shaimos buried, not burned? so what was that bonfire made out of?
