About This Quiz

Lent is a period of different types of fasting, which includes giving up meals, particular food groups, items or leisurely activities. This also depends on the religion, church and a person's own morals and ethics regarding Lent.

Some people like to give up sweets, soda, video games or TV during the spring period of Lent, while others take it more seriously by not eating for several days out of the week. There are also different types of rules on what you can and cannot eat during Lent, but that also depends on the particular church you're involved with. For example, Eastern Orthodox Churches are more strict regarding Lent rules than Roman Catholic Churches.

Lent is observed during the spring months, right before Easter. Aside from fasting, it also involves enhancing and maintaining a spiritual connection with the Lord. This can be through various activities, such as reading certain scriptures of the Bible or going on prayer walks.

In this quiz, we'll take a look at the history of Lent, the types of "rules" that certain churches follow and what should not be consumed in terms of food and drinks. If you think you're an expert on Lent, try and score 90 percent on this quiz now!
