This year it starts on 5 March, which is one week away.
Lent is a 40 day period, in which Christians prepare for Easter. It is a penitential season marked by fasting. abstinence, prayer, and alms giving.
Every year, I abstain from meat on fridays during lent and I usually try to give up something I enjoy. So I am considering what to give up this year.
If it is something easy to do without, it doesnt become much of a sacrifice. So it has to hurt a bit for it to be meaningful.
Facebooking? Computer games? Chocolates? Desserts? What will it be?
I still have a week to decide.
