There is a special time in every year that goes for 40 days and nights. It is when Jesus fasted for 40 days. It is when we fast, pray and almsgiving. It has a main colour which is purple. It is called Lent.
Lent starts on Ash Wednesday and ends on easter Sunday. During Lent we give up something and do not eat meat. Also during Lent we do donation which is called caritas and the reason why we do caritas is because to support other children in other countries that can’t afford education for a better future. Thats how important Lent is to catholic people.
