What Is Lent?
Lent is a period of religious observance in the Christian liturgical calendar, marking the 40 days that Jesus spent fasting in the desert, enduring temptation by Satan.
It is a period of grief, which is ended by a grand celebration of Easter.
Fat Tuesday is the last day of excess before Christians mark the lenten time period.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends approximately six weeks later.
Lent will be observed from February 22 to April 8 this year.
People typically give up something as a sign of sacrifice and self-discipline during this period.
