Tisha B’Av Customs:
The reason we are starting at the end of Shabbat and not on the 9th is because one should not be grieving during Shabbat, so we start at the end of Shabbat. We end Shabbat by saying,
Baruch hamavdil bein kodesh l’chol.
During Tisha B’Av it is customary to not wear leather shoes, and not to bathe.
It is customary to not greet one another over Tisha B’Av.
