Is today a fast day?

Also is it acceptable to pray let’s say an extra decade of the rosary in lieu of giving up meat? My brother has cooked meat at a dinner party

I am not aware that today is a day of either fasting or abstinance.

Not sure actually what the abstinence is in England ???

But we are in the Octave of Christmas…which I think makes today a Solemnity which would remove the obligation…

But give your local Priest a call…or a local Catholic Monastery…

Or perhaps others out there know more detail…

Thanks Bookcat. Thanks for your assistance as always . God bless you
