Celebration\ Observance

Christians during this period (40 days) will refrain from pleasures like drinking, smoking, sex and other activities to more purify their spirit. Many will also fast and attend church services throughout this period of sacred Christian days.

History

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday the day before Easter Sunday with 46 total days between these two days. Christians do not fast on Sundays so Lent or "Lenten Fast" is only 40 days because the Sunday's during Lent are not fasting days.
