Re: Not a YAGE...

I haven never heard of Sunday's being excluded, I am confused about that too.
Maybe my family just made it include Sunday's as we grew up but I looked this up and yep, it says Sunday's are excluded and makes it the 40 days.
I gave up Soda and having a hard time.

Lent is the forty-day liturgical season of fasting, special prayer and almsgiving in preparation for Easter. The name "Lent" is from the Middle English Lenten and Anglo-Saxon Lenten, meaning spring; its more primitive ecclesiastical name was the "forty days," tessaracoste in Greek. The number "forty" is first noted in the Canons of Nicaea (A.D. 325), likely in imitation of Jesus' fast in the desert before His public ministry (with Old Testament precedent in Moses and Elijah). By the fourth century, in most of the West, it referred to six days' fast per week of six weeks (Sundays were excluded); in the seventh century the days from Ash Wednesday through the First Sunday were added to make the number forty.

From my iPhone, probably while BF'ing.
Wow, I'm Catholic and have never heard this before. I guess it's a modern day modification just like meatless Fridays only during Lent now instead of year-round like it used to be.

I'm sure I've heard of it before but since I normally give up stuff like my hair it never applies to me.

Same here, I don't know about this Sunday exclusion but it kind of defeats the purpose iMO.
I looked it up and it does says Sunday's are excluded, but for our family growing up, we had no days excluded and never had meat on Fridays from Lent to Easter Sunday when the feast was shared.

We never cheated on Sundays either. My mom told me that growing up they had no meat on Wednesdays and FridayS during Lent and no meat year round on Fridays. For me that would be a cooking nightmare!! I had a hard time this week.
