Celebrating the start of Lent with Ash Wednesday memes.
The Mardi Gras season ends with Fat Tuesday following the start to the holy Lenten season with Ash Wednesday. It’s a week of celebrations and faith, but we are adding in the funny.
Ash Wednesday Memes
In years past, we have shared our Lent Memes.
This year, we are adding to the party with a collection of funny Ash Wednesday memes.
Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent, which is the 40-day period of fasting and reflection leading up to Easter Sunday. Wait so does the fasting and giving up the bad stuff begin on the morning of the first day of Lent or after you have been ashed? Asking for a friend.
The date of Ash Wednesday varies from year to year, but it always falls 46 days before Easter Sunday and can occur as early as February 4th or as late as March 10th. Ash Wednesday 2023 lands on February 22, 2023.
You know in the Ash Wednesday service when the minister reads from Job 42:6. Therefore, I reject my words and am sorry for them; I am dust and ashes. You come from dust, you will return to dust sooo…
Woohoo, let the fasting and whatever else you are abstaining from for the next 40 days until Easter.
