Just texted my mom to see what her plans are tonight (she's supposed to have a date with her boyfriend...) "Early sushi dinner with your daughter? Then you're even practicing Lent!" The joke is that our family is historically Catholic, many members are still nominally (or not so nominally) Catholic, and my hometown is still pretty saturated, at least culturally. My nuclear family is so secular that my youngest brother, when asked at 13 why we celebrated Easter, said "I dunno, something to do with Jesus and bunny rabbits." Any excuse for sushi, though, right?
