Super Tuesday, Super Bowl, Super Lent?

With apologies to my friends from New England, here in New Jersey, we're really enjoying the Giants' win in the Super-Bowl. We're getting ready for a great ticker-tape parade in NYC tomorrow morning. There's nothing like a parade in NYC.

However, it's also Super Tuesday, and for the first time ever in New Jersey, we are a part of this Super-Primary....So, everybody vote first, then watch the parade on TV.

Tomorrow is also preparation day for the beginning of Lent. We strip our church building of flowers, extra banners, we bring out the violet vestments and hangings, and basically begin our Spring cleaning!

We'll burn the palms from last year's Palm Sunday, and then grind them down to make the ashes for Wednesday's Ashes.
