Ash Wednesday


So it’s here “Ash Wednesday” for non Catholic people like myself who are interested in this religious holiday lets join in. As long as your a Christian you can participate in “Ash Wednesday” so I am a Christian so this is going to be my first year to give up something.

From what I hear from Catholic people you are suppose to give up something for 40 days. It’s like the story in the Bible when Jesus fasted in the wilderness for for 40 days and 40 nights.  Now you are suppose to give up something meaningful to you.

I think I’m going to give up eating meat, procrastinating, and sipping cocktails . Does anyone else want to start the journey of lent with me. Lets give up something in honor of the holiday and celebrate one of the oldest Christian traditions around. If you saw people walking around with a black cross in the middle of their forehead they were practicing the ritual.

What can you give up for 40 days.
