Tradition: Christianity-Protestant, Christianity-Roman Catholic
A day of repentance observed by Protestant and Roman Catholic Christians to mark the beginning of Lent, the 40-day period (excluding Sundays) of prayer, repentance, and self-denial preceding Easter. The name derives from the practice of marking of the faithful with ashes to signify penitence.—Source: Harvard University School of Divinity Multifaith CalendarClick here for more information.
