Ash Monday also known as Pure Monday, is the first day of the Eastern Orthodox Christian.

It is a movable feast that occurs at the beginning of the 7th week before Orthodox Easter Sunday.
The common term for this day, "Clean Monday", refers to the leaving behind of sinful attitudes and non-fasting foods.
