SAN ANTONIO - It’s been 73 years since Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day have fallen on the same day and while it may cause some sort of dilemma, the romance doesn’t have to go away. 

For many Christians who observe it, the first day of the Lenten season means fasting or abstinence from meat.

The dilemma, then, that arises when the holy day coincides with the most romantic day of the year means the elimination of enjoying a steak dinner, chocolates and washing it all down with alcohol.
