Feel free to eat Meat on Friday, March 25th

On Fridays during Lent, Catholics are called to abstain from meat. However, March 25th is the Feast of the Annunciation, when Mary said her "yes" to God and changed the course of history. as a feast day, it is a day of celebration and not of fasting. Therefore, one can eat meat. Now, personally, giving up meat is no big deal for me as I don't eat that much of it anyway, but I am thinking indulging in some chocolate may definitely be in order!
