I grew up Catholic, and lent was a very relevant part of my life. As soon as I moved out of the house for college, however, it transformed into a thing of the past. Lent is a period of fasting, moderation, and self-denial beginning on Ash Wednesday lasting until Easter Sunday. Basically, it’s a way for Catholics to remind themselves of the value of repentance. If it’s not your cup of tea, no worries because twitter was full of jokes revolving around the religious holiday.
