Things you did not know about Lent

Miércoles de Ceniza / Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday represents spiritual renewal and food abstinence is suggested, which doubles the consumption of fish and seafood. Lent also offers surprising health benefits, such as a decrease in cholesterol and obesity in North America. But Lent is not only about reflection and penance, some of the biggest carnivals in the world take place during these 40 days.
