Lent starts today
Lent, as many people know, is the 40 day period leading up to Easter. For some, it’s a time of abstinence whilst for others, it’s the lead up to unwrapping chocolate eggs...
BUT, did you know - the word Lent has nothing to do with fasting or giving things up
‘Lent’ is, in fact, a shortened version of the Old English word ‘lencten’, a word which simply means spring (in relation to the season).
Nowadays many people treat Lent as a challenge to last 40 days without their favourite treats - Children often give up chocolate, sweets, certain toys or television – while adults usually go for alcohol, coffee or cigarettes.
Those who choose to take something on during this time will often donate money to a good cause or dedicate time to volunteering for charity.
Can you last six weeks without one of your favourite foods or indulgences?
