Why do you eat more fish in Lent?

The word Lent comes from Latin quadragesima, which means forty, or quarantine. This evokes 40 days of fasting prior to the celebration of the Hebrew Passover feast, which later became Catholic as well.

This is due to a tradition of Catholic origin, which begins on Wednesday
ash (or first day of Lent).

These 40 days of fasting are of purification, in which believers abstain from worldly pleasures and aspects, with a symbolic aspect, and within the nutritional aspect, in red meat.

In the same way, this may be related to the practice of sacrifices of warm-blooded creatures to the pagan gods (red meat animals), which the Christians sought to eradicate, both in practice and in abstinence from their consumption.

With all this, it was then that poultry and fish became an option to eat during this period.

Currently, only red meat is avoided on Ash Wednesday,
Lent and during the Easter Triduum (Thursday, Friday and Holy Saturday).
