Lent is a period of 40 weekdays before Easter. It is a time for contemplation, repentance and, in some Christian Churches (like the Roman Catholic) a time for sacrificing or fasting. It is a preparation for Easter, during which there are mid-week Lenten services. The last week in Lent most churches have at least three extra services; the saddest of these is Good Friday, when Christ died. Easter Sunday, of course, is the day Christ arose.
