What will you give up for Lent?

Post by Chamberino on Wed Feb 17, 2010 3:48 am

What are you giving up for Lent, and why?

For those who don't know what Lent is, it's when you give something up for 40 days; from Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day :P) until Easter. Typical stuff to give up is chocolate, junk food, and things like that.

So yeah, What are you giving up?

I'm giving up eating meat, thanks to some "gentle" persuasion from my vegan girlfriend :P

Hm...I think I might give video games up (not mmos of course I mean like playstation status xD) since I play them an awful lot. I've really been playing Devil May Cry a lot lately .

I can hardly make it through Friday's without meat so that's definitley out for me to give it up all the way xD You're braver than I Chamb :P

Awww, thats sweet.

I, being Lutheran, do not celebrate Lent, but may just give something up too, because our pastor said it is not required of us but participating is fine. If I do end up giving something up, it will be... mountain dew. Near impossible, I know.

For you guys who don't know, it's a Christian/Christian-catholic (possibly more) thing, telling of the 40 days Jesus went alone to the desert without any food or water during that whole period. He was tempted many times by the devil there, but he did not give in.

So that is what we must do - give up something and not be tempted for 40 whole days.

I honestly don't know what to give up, TBH the only thing I do excessively is computer, AQW, TR, and photoshop and there is NOWAI I'm giving up them.

I'm not giving anything up for Lent this year... only year I ever did anything, I gave up staying up late reading. That was how I came by my habit of staying up late playing computer...

What can I say? I'm nocturnal at heart. There isn't anything I could give up that wouldn't leave me doing something weirder, so... I guess this year, I'm giving up giving up stuff for Lent.

Unless...

Remember this thread, y'all? Seeing as it's Lent again, I thought it was time to revive it.

Lent snuck up on me this year; seriously, I didn't see it coming. So, I'm two days late, but as they say, "better late than never."

This year, I'm giving up self-loathing for Lent. Or at least I'm going to try; not sure how far that's physically possible.
