Noun. The forty days of prayer, repentance, almsgiving, and self-denial that prepares Christians for Holy Week and imitates Jesus’ own period of fasting, meditation, and temptation in the wilderness. Today it is popular among the pseudoreligious, who abstain from nominal vices such as swearing and eating chocolate. For these vacuous individuals, Lent is a compromise to the taxing, 365-day commitment New Year’s resolutions demand.
Tiny decided to give up biting her nails for Lent, but forgot about her resolution within a week.
