First Sunday of Lent is hidden?

Hidden Mickey at Virginia Falls in Glacier National Park. The purpose of Lent is often hidden too.

Yesterday was the first Sunday of Lent. Lent is really designed to give every Christian 40 days to prepare for the magnificence of the Holy Resurrection.

Does anyone know why “giving something up” for Lent became a thing?

Guessing the discomfort of abstaining from a comfortable habit is a sufficient trigger to remind yourself it is the Lenten season. Or maybe it has to do with Jesus not eating for 40 days – the suffering. Maybe it’s the discomfort suffering.
