Holidays are generally a time for celebration. Most involve festive activities that involve your family, if you like them, and perhaps a gift or several.

Inevitably everyone gathers around a table for a meal reserved for this particular time of year. And then there is Ash Wednesday, a day of repentance when Catholics confess their sins and double down on their love for God. This is when you're gonna hear all the good stories.

The day is literally marked by a cross drawn on one's forehead using ash, hence the name. While doing this, the Priest whispers, "Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return."

We prefer to think of ourselves as dust in the wind. Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent and the countdown to Easter. During Lent you give one thing up for 46 days then you explode on Easter and do it all.

One thing you shouldn't give up is Ash Wednesday memes because we rounded up our faves.
