The Advent Fast begins on Saturday, November 15th... But since the 14th is a fast day, TODAY is the last day to eat meat (and depending on how strictly you are planning to fast... )
Remember to stay focused on the feast day and less on the festivities. After all, Keeping Christ in Christmas doesn't mean saying "Merry Christmas" instead of "Happy Holidays." There is a deeper meaning to this phrase. Keeping Christ in Christmas means that we respect that this is a religious holiday and are following the traditions the church has protected. We fill these days with prayer, fasting and alms giving not lists to Santa for our wants, Christmas parties and overspending on gifts to give to friends, who already have everything they could possible need; meanwhile, ignoring the poor and shut-in.
