It would be difficult to find anyone who does not know about the holidays of Christmas and Easter. But have any of you noticed the traditional observances that occur between those two celebrations? Terms like Epiphany, Mardi Gras, Carnival, Ash Wednesday, and Lent are frequently heard during this time of year, but what does it all mean? What do these days and their unusual symbols represent? Where did they come from? How did many of these holidays come to be considered Christian celebrations? The Eternal Church of God has done an extensive amount of research and produced an informative booklet explaining the truth about Mardi Gras, Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, and Lent.
