I can't believe | I couldn't believe This page is about the conversational phrase I can't believe | I couldn't believe.Meaning: You can say this when describing something that's true, but so amazing or disturbing that you can't believe it's true. For example:
"Check it out! It's one of those new TV's." "Wow. I can't believe how clear the picture is!"
"I couldn't believe how badly they were treated." "The garment workers?" "Yes! They worked for twelve hours straight in a dirty factory, and they only got two dollars!"
Answer: Ash Wednesday is the first day of Lent. Its official name is “Day of Ashes,” so called because of the practice of rubbing ashes on one’s forehead in the sign of a cross. Since it is exactly 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter Sunday, it will always fall on a Wednesday—there cannot be an “Ash Thursday” or “Ash Monday.” The Bible never mentions Ash Wednesday—for that matter, it never mentions Lent.
