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.
