When the fast of Tisha B'Av is pushed off from a Shabbos to Sunday do the minhagim of Shavua Shechal Bo apply for the whole week leading up to Shabbos (Since 9 of Av is shabbos) or is there effectively no Shavua SheChal Bo because the fast is observed on Sunday (the first day of the week)? Or, is it a machloket :) ?

  • If your an ashkanazi what's the difference?
