Apparently there aren't enough Catholics in your life! Shrove Tuesday followed by Ash Wednesday, when all the cool kids got to walk around with ashes smeared on their foreheads. I've gone to mass just for the ashen cross. When you're 12, it's the closest you're getting to a tattoo.
Bahahah! Christian grew up Catholic, and he dropped it about ten years ago....but pancake day?!?!?!?!?ohhhh yes please!
