    We fast for lent in preparation for Easter and the resurrection of Christ.  It is a sign of penitence and humility.  It is a denial of self to bring us spiritually closer to God.  Then, on Easter, when the fast is lifted, we celebrate.  It is a sign of trying to imitate Christ's life in a small way; a little suffering, personal and corporal withholding.
