A-Z: General definitions: Lent


A period of 40 days before Easter, excluding Sundays, starting on Ash Wednesday. Traditionally, this is a time of reflection for Christians, who will often also give up a favourite food etc. for the forty days, linked with the forty days that Jesus spent in the wilderness being tempted by the devil (Matthew 4:1-11).
