Halocho #1875 - When can we sit on chairs on Tish'a B'Av?

On the fast of תִּשְׁעָה בְּאָב it is customary not to sit on chairs from the time the fast begins (Monday afternoon before sunset) until noon the following day (Tuesday).

Instead, one sits on the floor. Anything within 3 Tefachim (about 9" - 24 cm) of the floor is considered as being on the floor.

After noon on תִּשְׁעָה בְּאָב (Tuesday) one may sit on regular chairs. However, all other restrictions of the fast apply until the fast is over at nightfall.

נוֹהֲגִין שֶׁאֵין יוֹשְׁבִין עַל סַפְסַל לֹא בַלַּיְלָה וְלֹא בַיּוֹם עַד לְאַחַר הַצָהֳרַיִם, כִּי אִם עַל הָאָרֶץ, וּלְאַחַר הַצָהֳרַיִם מֻתָּרִין. אֲבָל שְׁאָר דְּבָרִים הָאֲסוּרִים, אֲסוּרִים עַד צֵאת הַכּוֹכָבִים
