Fast of Ninevah

The fast of Ninevah is a three day fasting period which happens on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the third week before Lent. Participants usually abstain from all dairy and meat products. However some observe more rigorously and abstain from all food and drink from Sunday midnight to Wednesday at noon.
This is one of the 7 official fasting periods for the Ethiopian Orthodox church.
