upcoming traditional fast days

Jayne:
Oct 28 is the feast of Sts. Simon and Jude.  Not too long ago, the vigil (Oct 27) as a fast day. 

Oct 31 is the vigil of All Saints (which somehow sounds more Catholic than Halloween) which is still a fast day recommended to SSPX associates, for example.

Yes, the Advent Ember Days: December 16, 18, and 19

Ember Days Folklore:
According to folklore, the weather conditions of each of the three days of an Embertide foretells the weather conditions for the following three months.

MundaCorMeum:
Didn't all of  Advent used to be a time of fasting?  Like a mini-lent?

Yes, and it was longer, on par with Lent.
