Ash Wednesday

For many folks involved in the Christian faith, Wednesday marked an important day, Ash Wednesday. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, the 40 day period Christians use to prepare themselves for the crucifixion of Jesus, followed by the celebration of his resurrection. Many Christians use the Lenten period to strengthen their faith by fasting or giving up something like smoking or eating their favorite food.
