Winter LentWinter Lent
is the second-greatest fasting period in the church year in Eastern Christianity
, and prepares Christians for Christmas
, also known as the "Feast of the Nativity of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ". It is in many ways similar to Great Lent
, although the fasting guidelines are somewhat less strict, and there is typically not a Liturgy of Pre-sanctified Gifts.
