Explanation about Lent

Hi everyone I am going to explain to you about  Lent. Which we are having today!!

Lent is a Christian season of preparing before Easter. Which begins 40 days prior of Easter. Lent starts on Wednesday 5th of March and ends on Thursday 17th of April. Lent is very important because it’s a reminder of Jesus. It is important for Christian people because it symbolizes the 40 days of Jesus in the Desert.

Jesus spent his time in the Desert fasting and praying. Lent is all about Jesus because Jesus died for sins so that we could be alive. The colour for Lent is purple. It is the colour purple because the bible tells us that the pilate and his soldiers placed a purple rope on Jesus before his crucifixion. My opinion for Lent is that I thank Jesus for dying and for saving our sins. I really think that we do need to learn a lot about Jesus because he was the one that gave up for him for us. Why Purple because Purple is the colour of Royalty.
Palm Sunday is one of the most important days in the christian calendar after christmas and Easter. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, and marks the beginning of Holy Week, The week of events leading up to Jesus death. As one of the most important events in the church.

As one of the most important events in the life of the church, it is important to have the right media to Celebrate. Ash Wednesday was a day to give up something. Alms Giving and to remember Jesus.
