Nativity Fast28 November – 6 January 2015
The Nativity fast begins on November 28, and lasts forty days. This period of fasting begins directly after the commemoration of the Holy Apostle Philip, on the November 28 according to the Church calendar, and concludes with the Nativity Feast itself. The Nativity fast is not as strict as Great Lent or the Dormition fast, and can be compared to the Apostle’s fast: fish can be eaten on every Saturday and Sunday, as well as on festal days of the Church calendar that do not fall on Wednesday or Friday. It was instituted by the Church so that we would worthily greet the feast of the Nativity of Christ after having cleansed our hearts by prayer and repentance.
