What Do Valentine’s Day and Ash Wednesday Have In Common?
It's taken 73 years for this to happen. Valentine's Day is falling on Ash Wednesday. What does that mean? First of all you can't spell Valentine without lent!

This hasn't happened since our grandparents were dating! I wonder what they did to celebrate Valentine's Day.
Ash Wednesday can occur as early as February 4th or as late as March 10th. And that 40 day period where Christians pray, repent, abstain and fast can be challenging.

I don't think anyone can go wrong with flowers, a nice card or just spending some alone time together.
