Ascension Day

today is a public holiday in most Catholic countries of Europe (and maybe the world?). More than 2000 years ago on this exact day, the 14th May, our lord and savior Jesus Christ went back aboard his mothership and headed for space.

In memory of this event, Christians around the world celebrate anything that goes up. rockets, taxes, eyebrows, umbrellas, me in your mum.
