What is Ash Wednesday?
This is for Spanish homework.
In the Western Christian calendar, Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent and occurs forty-six days (forty days not counting Sundays) before Easter.
This information is from Vikipedia. You should have Google-d for this.
I know there are people on this site who know what Ash Wednesday is. However, I think you should try to find out what it is on your own first. This is a learning site. We gladly help people if they have done everything to find the answer on their own first.
So do a search. Find out what you can. If your information and the Spanish language coincide in anyway, come back and we will be glad to discuss this with you.
Ash Wednesday is a holiday. It is the first day of Lent. On this day, you can go to Mass and get ashes drawn in the shape of a cross on your forehead. I am a Catholic, and we celebrate this holiday, but I'm not sure if it is only a Catholic holiday, or if it is a Christian holiday too.
