    Does that woman with the mobile phone have ash on her forehead? If so, I’ve never seen that here in England. Perhaps I’ve just missed it.

    • Yes. It is a big deal here in the U.S.. Ash Wednesday, a day of fasting, is the first day of Lent in Western Christianity. It occurs 46 days before Easter and can fall as early as February 4th or as late as March 10th. Ash Wednesday is observed by many Western Christians, including Catholics, Lutherans, Methodists, Anglicans, and Presbyterians.
