Ash Wednesday February 26th marks the beginning of the holiest time of the Christian year. With the priest using his right thumb to apply the ashes while saying the prayer, "Remember that you are dust and to dust you shall return," the 40-day Lenten season commences. 
Traditionally, at least one person from every household attends Church on Ash Wednesday so they would bring home a pinch or two, so that all family members could have their foreheads marked.
