Re: Catholics, What Are You Giving Up for Lent?

Lent has such an interesting history. It's a very old tradition. I'm just interested in and pleased to know the fact that people still "giving something up," voluntarily, for it. There are many different ways to acknowledge and exercise it and there have been some very interesting responses to this question of what people are giving up, this year.

Lent is associated with the most important holiday on the Christian calendar, being Easter, of course. Without that, even Christmas doesn't mean all that much, outside of the celestial event associated with that. So, I rather enjoy Lent, personally and get into it, from that perspective.

I may not be Catholic, but I'm glad I ask questions. According to a friend of mine who is, my vocal loss counts, since its considered suffering.

then posting here counts, too. With all these annoying ads I dare say we suffer pretty badly.

(not meaning to diminish your suffering, {{{Wookie}}}. Just trying to make you giggle. A German proverb says "laughter is the best medicine".)
