Thursday 2019.02.14
Ash Wednesday. Yearly. UNCONFIRMED
Christian in origin, this is the first day of Lent and the seventh Wednesday preceding Easter Sunday. The name originates from the ritual of placing ashes on worshipers' foreheads, symbolizing death and sorrow for sin. Lent is a 40 day period of penitence, prayer and fasting. Over time, fasting has been de-emphasized (though certain abstentions such as drinking and red meats are commonly observed), and the importance of prayer and works of charity has grown. Lent was first observed in the 4th century.
