Ash Wednesday
Mar 1, 2017
In the Christian church, the Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the fasting period. The name is derived from the burning of palm branches and the donation of the ashing. The fasting period should be a reminder of Jesus' stay in the desert and be a preparation for Easter. In addition to this, Ash Wednesday also marks the end of the carnival season in Germany.
