Little known fact, for a long time it was actually smoker's day, where smokers united, and offen would march down the street, putting thier cigs out on the foreheads of non-smokers & little old ladies, but thankfully some traditions are fading away now.

Had no idea it was 'ash wednesday' today. Saw a few people around the office(big building) with sh!t on their faces, surprisingly, I didnt think anything of it. No eating meat? Eh, dont tell me what I can and can not eat on any sort of day, wont be eating meat today anyway, more veg for my dindins tonight. Maybe a bit of meat in my deli roll in a little bit.

Silly tradition tbh, I mean like, we are people with a population of 7 billion or there abouts on a planet, floating in a extremely vast space. Aliens (if they could be arsed) must look at us today and think (as someone funnily said already) 'why are they walking around with burnt rubbish on their faces?' lol.

Silly little usless race we are. WASH YOUR FOREHEAD, dirty hippy!

I had homemade chicken soup for breakfast. Going to eat a bit of meatloaf for lunch, and have more meatloaf with a little rice for dinner. So... yeah. Meat-tastic.

I would hate in secondary school when sanctimonious feckers would chide me for eating meat as part of my lunch on Ash Wednesday. What business was it of theirs? Our school was Catholic ethos but there was students of at least three other religions attending also. I was raised Catholic but how did they know what my feelings on religion were and why on Earth should I have defend myself on such a matter?

I'm wondering that too, it was much easier for them back in the day when people were allowed to smoke in the pubs. All they had to do was head across the street and empty the ash trays, no idea how they do it today
