It's Fat Tuesday Everyone!!!

Do you observe Lent? If so, what's your tradition/special things we do?

We're at a church that observes Lent somewhat informally, but we do acknowledge and spend time thinking about this season.

I remember years ago we had bad bushfires on a Wednesday many lives taken and it was called ash wednesday bushfires. well It was years before I realised it was called that because of it being on ash wednesday!

Iola (iola_goulton) | 2 comments In England, it's Shrove Tuesday - and there are pancakes. My church here in New Zealand doesn't observe Lent. I don't think the concept works so well in the Southern Hemisphere, when Lent is roughly the same time as Harvest.

The church of England and some others observe Lent here but we dont.
From what mum said the catholics eat fish on fridays during lent as did many others cos it was cheaper that day.
I still cant work out why people say they can eat fish on Good Friday because its not meat. to my thinking its still flesh and it still died to be eaten.
