Omitting Tachanun on the day of a Bar Mitzvah

Bar Mitzvah:

Some[1] communities are accustomed not to say Tachanun in the presence of a Bar Mitzvah boy on the day of his Bar Mitzvah, and so is the widespread Sefaradic custom in Eretz Yisrael. Other[2] communities are accustomed to recite Tachanun on the day of the Bar Mitzvah, and so is the widespread Ashkenazi customs and so is the Chabad custom.
