Word of the Week Wedneday

Hello my raviolis.  Yes, it is Word of the Week Wednesday again.  Can you guess what today's word is? Here is a hint:  It is a word that you see every seven days on raviolis for lunch.  That word is:


Wednesday is the day in the middle of the work week and is named for the Norse God, Odin.  Pronounced "Wodenz" in middle English it became known as Wodenz Day which then became Wednesday.  Below is a picture of Odin, the Norse God.

Did you know that Jason and Aaron were born on a Wednesday?  Yes, both of my sons were born on a Wednesday.  You can check your birth day by going to this link:

Leave a comment and tell us if you were born on a Wednesday too.

  Did you know that only one holiday typically recurs yearly on a Wednesday?  That day is  Ash Wednesday and is the official beginning of lent. TODAY IS ALSO ASH WEDNESDAY.   It is called "Ash" Wednesday, since the 400's, and is the day when the faithful of many Western Christian churches mark their foreheads with ash. This is done to mark the beginning of Lent which ends with  Easter Sunday.  When grandma-ma was a little girl, she would receive ashes on her forehead from the priest at St. Josephs Church in Lincoln Park, New Jersey.

This is a picture of a little boy who just received his ashes at his church.  So my raviolis, be sure to use the word Wednesday in three sentences today.  Here is grandma-ma's first sentence:  "Uncle Aaron will celebrate  his birthday on Wednesday, February 24th."

Love to you all my Wednesday raviolis. Grandma-ma
