I was raised catholic. As long as I can remember, whatever we gave up for lent we could have on Sundays. We often times gave up sweets, and we would even wait up on Saturday nights until midnight to eat Girl Scout cookies because, after all, after midnight it was Sunday. Is this the general concensus? One of her explanations is that there are actually more than 40 days in the Lenten season, so they divide up the extra days. If this is the way all catholics do this, is there a web site somewhere that explains it? Thanks for your input!
