"Ash Wednesday occurs on a different date each year. It is always 46 days before Easter. Since Easter itself is a movable feast, the date of Ash Wednesday changes accordingly. The calculation is based on the Sunday following the first full moon that occurs on or after the March equinox, which is always March 21 in the Christian Church calendars. It can occur as early as February 4 or as late as March 10"
