I’ve always been under the impression that Lent lasted exactly 40 days.
Looking at the calendar the other day, I noticed the count from Ash Wednesday to Easter was more like 46.
Turns out that Sundays in Lent don’t count. There are exactly 40 non-Sundays in there. Sunday is a celebration of the resurrection, so I guess it doesn’t fit in with the pain and suffering of the Lenten season.
Hmmm. That means an extra week of not drinking. I thought I was signing on for 40 days!
Ever get the feeling you’ve been cheated?
