Is Lent Capitalized?

Yes, Lent, when it refers to the season leading up to the Easter holiday, is capitalized because it is a proper noun and a named holiday. When the word refers to giving money to someone, then it is lowercase unless used in a title.

Easter is a religious holiday of the Christian faith celebrating the rebirth of Jesus Christ after he died on the cross. Lent marks the 40-day period prior to Easter which begins with Ash Wednesday.
