Whenever I discuss Ash Wednesday and Good Friday, as I have recently, I know the next question that readers will ask. With thoughts of Lent firmly planted in their heads, they're already looking forward to the end of the Lenten fast. Thus the question: "When does Lent end?"
In the past, I've always answered the question that I assumed readers were really asking: "When can I start eating chocolate/watching TV/snacking between meals/[insert your Lenten sacrifice here] again?" And, in almost every case, that probably was what the reader really meant. But the answer wasn't really complete, because, you see, for Roman Catholics Lent ends on two different days, depending on what you mean by the question.
Intrigued? You can read more about when Lent ends, and find the two answers, in When Does Lent End? But before you click through, I'll give you one hint: Neither of the correct answers is Palm Sunday.
