The leavetaking (Greek: ἀπόδοσις (apodosis); Slavonic: отдание (otdaniye)) (also known as apodosis or conclusion) of a feast is the final day a feast is celebrated in the Church. In most cases it follows an afterfeast. On the leavetaking, most elements of the festal services are appointed to be served again. In the western rite, the Octave of a feast has a similar use.
In addition, four Third Class Feasts have leavetakings.
- St. Demetrios (October 26)—leavetaking: October 27
- Nativity of the Forerunner (June 24)—leavetaking: June 25
- Ss. Peter and Paul (June 29)—leavetaking: June 30
- Beheading of the Forerunner (August 29)—leavetaking August 30
