Why Bother?

It’s Ash Wednesday. Millions of Christians will be going to worship Ash Wednesday by my new clever nameservices and mass this day (or evening) to mark the begining of Lent.

Is observing Ash Wednesday a requirement for Christians? Is it a harmful and archaic ritual  that Christians should dispense with? Or is there some good purpose for the lives of Christians in attending Ash Wednesday services?
