ASCHERMITTWOCH     
[[Aschermittwoch]] (Ash Wednesday) is the day following Karneval and the first day of Lent. On this day devout Catholics go to church and have a cross of ashes smeared on their foreheads as a reminder of the transience of human life., In Bavaria there is also politischer Aschermittwoch. Each political party holds a mass rally at which it reviews its own policies and more especially those of the other parties. The speakers are not only local politicians but also often the national party leaders. For this reason politischer Aschermittwoch is a focus of attention for the whole of Germany.
