Post subject:  Fasting day

On the shortest day of the year traditionally Quakers fast. This starts at sun set on the 21 and ends at sun set on the 22 Dec.

24 hours of nothing but water to drink.

As a kid... I abhor the shortest day of the year with a passion. While other pigged out on chocolate, mince pies and other treats... I was shut in with frk all [9n5.gif]

For years after the day became pud lunch and piss up day :winedrinker:

It's only now I'm starting to carry out the tradition again. After 21 days of drink, mince pies and turkey, taking a break feels right :blush:

Or maybe I'm just turning into my dad :shock:
