Having been in operation for 2,000 years since Christ founded it, the Catholic Church has very rich traditions. Part of our liturgy includes the glorious song chanted by angels: Alleluia -- except during lent.

There are many customs related to the start and end of Alleluia's deposition, generally known as "burying the Alleluia". These serve to remind us of the season we are entering and the great joy to follow.
