Are Sundays a Day Off During Lent?

Lent is coming soon so it's a good time to ask: Are Sundays a day off in Lent? I never heard about such a thing as a child but now, it seems like standard operating procedure.  From the Sunday-free-day crowd, I heard that since Sundays celebrate the resurrection of our Lord,  fasting is not even appropriate.  Well, what the heck?   Were all those extra days of sacrifice unwarranted?
