What is Lent?

The Lenton season is one of the most important season of the year for many Christian groups. During lent, many Christians view this time of fasting and spiritual discipline. My family is catholic, and we always observe lent by refraining from meat on Ash Wednesday and all of the Fridays leading up to Easter, among other things. 

Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and lasts for the six weeks leading up until Easter.  These days vary on the calendar each year.
