Carling-Sunday is an English term for the fifth Sunday in Lent, or Passion Sunday, so called because a certain sort of peas, termed "Carles," were made into cakes and eaten on that day. A rhyming couplet, designating the Sundays in Lent, after the first, is still commonly' quoted in certain parts of England. The abbreviated words in it refer to portions of the old services of the Church:

"Tid, Mid, and Misera, Carling, Palm, and Pasch-egg day."
