Did you know?: Lent

Half way today

Today marks the half way point of Lent. Are you still “lenting”? Why do 40 days go by so slow when you fast? Hopefully today’s interesting facts from LiveLent.net can help you answer these questions.

  • ‘Lenting’ means sticking to fasting during Lent.
  • Lent is thought to last for 40 days, although it is actually 46, as the Sundays are not counted.
  • The word ‘Lent’ appears to have its beginnings in Anglo-Saxon, where the word means to lengthen, indicating that days are getting longer and spring is coming.
