If the Paramon falls on a Saturday or Sunday, during which there is neither Metanoias nor abstinence from food, we should fast (with abstinence) the day before which is usually a Friday. In this case, the Paramon becomes two or three days, that is to say. If the Nativity Feast falls on a Sunday, we would have a two-day Paramon, Saturday and Sunday. If it falls on a Monday, we would have a three-day Paramon, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and no eating of fish during these Paramon days, however abstinence would be on Friday only. If the feasts of Nativity or Epiphany fall on any day other than Sunday or Monday, the Paramon becomes only one day."
extra point - if you are not able to get to liturgy this wednesday 15 jan (feast of circumcision of our Lord), there is no strict fasting (abstaining from food). i checked with our priest about that.
so we are still vegan that day, but you can eat breakfast when you wake up. you don't need to wait till later (3pm, or however long you fast until) as it is a major feast of the Lord. of course, if you can go to liturgy, you should fast 9 hours as usual if you are taking Holy Communion.
