Ember Days, Minnesota and Burgers

Show us, O Lord, the light of Your kindness

Today is the first of three Ember Days of Spring or the Lenten Season. These are days of old, no longer held in the same high regard as before. They were observed as days of fasting and abstinence.

Ember Friday and the 2nd Friday of Lent

Today is the second Friday of Lent and the first Friday following the first Sunday of Lent. That would mean it’s an Ember Days Friday, too. So confusing. Bottom line is it’s a day of Abstinence within the Universal Catholic Church. It means no meat today. It is also a celebration of Spring with Ember Days of Lent.

Ember Wednesday and National Tortilla Chip Day

The fact that today is National Tortilla Chip Day should be self explanatory. It’s a day set aside to celebrate the crunchy snack loved by millions. Tortilla chips with a big bowl of salsa or guacamole are the most common ways to celebrate the day. Using Tortillas Chips as a base for Nachos is another.
