What is Lint and why does it last forty days?

While Tobias was searching on Google, he noticed the following search results:

Toby, like many people, asked himself "what is Lint the holiday?" To help him and all the others who don't know about Lint I decided to write a bit about it.

Lint is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Textile Wednesday and ends on Clothly Sunday. Lint comes from the latin linteus which means "made of linen".

Lint is a time of  weaving, felting, and knitting. Often Christians focus on their relationship with clothes, often choosing to give up something (like socks with sandals).

The forty days represent the time Jesus spent sowing clothing in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satin.
