Reread, I did explain why I started with Palm Sunday. Not that Ash Wednesday or Lent starts on Palm Sunday.
You said you remember Ash Wednesday and lent.
Then you said

"It starts on Palm Sunday..."

I had intended to give up pipe smoking for Lent. But as I was sitting at my desk an hour or so ago I absent mindedly lit up my favorite pipe that had about half a bowl of tobacco from last night. Doh!

I guess I'm going to have to remove all those evil pipes and cans of pipe tobacco scattered around my office, home and shop. lol :)
Are others still on the abstention wagon? I haven't fallen off since that one absent minded slip up the day after Lent started. To add double to my temptation, my wife and son are out of town visiting relatives. Normally, when I'm home alone I enjoy a bowl of pipe tobacco by the fireplace in the evenings. Not this time though. :)
