It’s time to celebrate Lent.

Lent is a Christian holiday that starts on Ash Wednesday.   This holiday helps us prepare for Easter.  Lent is a symbol of Jesus spending 40 days in the wilderness.  He was tempted by Satan during this time.  Satan knew that Jesus was hungry, tired, and alone, so he thought that he had an advantage over Jesus.  I think that we all should celebrate Lent, so we can stay strong during Satan’s attacks. Here is how you can celebrate.  

When does Lent Starts? 

Lent starts on February 26, 2020. 

How do we celebrate? 

We should give up something that we love. It could be snacks, drinks, alcohol, and more. Most Christians pray and fast for 40 days.  There is a lot that you can do during this period to show that you put God first in your life. 

How long do we celebrate? 

It is customary to celebrate 40 days.   I found that some people just celebrate the first day and Good Friday.  This is a celebration that leads us to Jesus’ resurrection.  It is important to remember the sacrifices that Jesus made so that we all are free from Satan.
