Lent is the 40-day period of repentance and renewal preceding Easter (this does not include Easter Sunday). Lent begins with Ash Wednesday, which is March 5th this year, and ends with Easter Sunday on April 20th. Lent is a special time when Christians focus on the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus. The color purple is used during Lent as a symbol of penitence. The cross is the symbol of Lent.
