The Abstinance of Penance

The Englishettes have gone down to Church for a Good Friday Kiddies Fun Activities Morning.
I'm not much of one for the finer points of theology but isn't that wrong? Shouldn't the Church make at least a gesture towards it being a bit of a downer of a day even if it being a proper fasting day is maybe a bit too Papist for the modern CofE? I'm pleased to see at least one primary school does realise this.
And to complete the incongruity the elder Englishette has gone dressed in her favourite dressing up outfit - a Roman Toga. I'm sure she will be warmly welcomed.

A secular song for today...

"the elder Englishette has gone dressed in her favourite dressing up outfit - a Roman Toga."

On this day I hope she remembered to wash her hands.

A toga at a Good Friday shindig?

ROFL

By the way, speaking of incongruities: when the Son&Heir was still attending Catholic school, his volleyball team played against another crowd of Papes. The nickname of the opposing team was the "Vikings".

Considering the history of the Church at the hands of the Norsemen, I found it hilarious.
