The holy period of Lent has begun. During the 40-day period, Christians replicate the acts of Jesus Christ by giving up something important to them, usually food. Lent 2020 starts with Ash Wednesday on February 26 and continues till April 9, 2020. Though Lent is believed to be a time of sacrifice and self-denial, people from the Christian community take it as an opportunity to better themselves. Watch the video to know more about Lent.
