Today is the First Day of March and Lent Begins

Happy March ! Today is the first day of Lent, or Ash Wednesday, which is celebrated by many Catholics with the placing of ash on our foreheads. It’s always 46 days before Easter. Lent includes days of fasting, and perhaps giving up a vice or another type of habit before Easter which is April 16th this year. My vice is sweets, so I guess I’ll be getting rid of sweets until Easter.Who knows, I may lose a few pounds right? (NOT)
