I was raised by a Catholic family. Ash Wednesday is my very least favorite. I hate Lent because of no meat every Friday until Easter Day. I cannot survive without any meat in 24 hours. Yes, I am a meatlover not seafood.
If you think the Harry Potter series is childish, then let me refer you to the fact that two people are murdered before the first book even starts and they died trying to prevent a baby from being killed by a grown man.
