There are only five more fasting days to Easter. Then on Easter Sunday we can binge away on Christ's resurrection day. Fair play to us, all the same, but we are the best Catholics in the world for religious binging.

I'm not sure if the church banned sex during Lent. They closed the dance halls, so the chances are that if the dancing was banned, it's highly unlikely the sex was allowed.

Back in the days when notice was taken of mad priests, the belting headboards of Ireland must have caused structural damage to the gable ends of houses on Easter Sunday morning. Times have changed and now we abstain for a good many other reasons.
