The Field - - LETTERS -

Jonathan Young is to be com­mended for his Len­ten fast and amus­ing writ­ing (Young in the field,

April is­sue). How­ever, he doesn’t have to wear a hair shirt through­out the 40 days. As “any fule kno”, Sun­days are al­ways a feast day, so ex­cluded from the pre-easter fast.

And no need to say “Easter Sun­day” – it’s just Easter Day. In­ci­den­tally, what is of­ten called Easter Satur­day is not un­til the Satur­day af­ter Easter; the Satur­day be­fore Easter Day is Holy Satur­day. Les­son over. Rev’d Robin Hunger­ford, Heytes­bury, Wilt­shire
