Halocho #1022 - Yom Kippour in winter?

Some people have the custom of adding the Yom Kippour Katan prayers during Mincha on the day before Rosh Chodesh.

Some even fast on Erev Rosh Chodesh to atone for the sins of the past month.

When Rosh Chodesh is on Shabbat (like this week) or on Sunday, the custom is to have Yom Kippour Katan on Thursday. That would be tomorrow.
