Radio question of the day: 02/19/07

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Lent will be starting soon. Will you give anything up?
post #2 of 28
No. While I do go to church, I'm not sure that I believe everything I hear.

Not to sound rude, but I'll be giving up what's left of my sanity. Lent is the busiest time of the year for us, I'll be pulling my hair out every Friday.
post #4 of 28
No, but I will be praying more.

I've already given up my waistline & my youth....what more does God want from me?!?!?!
post #6 of 28
I've given up so much already, what else is there to give up!?
post #7 of 28
Nope! I was raised Catholic untill about the 2nd grade and we did back then. Since then we've attended a non-denominational Christian church so no more lent. I do miss the good fish fries all over the town where I grew up though!

I'm not religious so I don't give anything up. I used to try to when I was a kid but it never lasted long.
post #9 of 28
I give up the same things every year-Black licorace, Scotch and brussel sprouts.
I know its hard but I seem to make it through ok.
Lots of places serving more fish frys though (YUM!!!)

You give up something up that you love for 40 days and 40 nights, such as chocolate, wine etc...

I'll enjoy a tasty pancake but as a lapsed Catholic I will enjoy testing anyone around me's faith by scoffing more grubbings than ever
I wish anyone luck over Lent (or Ramadan- which will be especially difficult this year in England as it hits more of the summer months) as it is incredibly hard to deprive yourself of anything in the modern world

Funniest post today

Lent is the 40 Days and Nights preceding the holy week of Easter. It is a time when those who practice the Catholic faith give up something for the full 40 days. Some people give up decadent things such as Chocolate or personal things such as giving up swearing. It is almost like a shorter version of a new year resolution.
I plan on donating my time to the locan animal shelter at least once a week. I have been putting it off for a while. I used to volunteer there when I had more time while in school.
The three traditional practices to be taken up with renewed vigor during Lent are prayer (justice towards God), fasting (justice towards self), and almsgiving (justice towards neighbor). Today, some people give up something they enjoy, and often give the time or money spent doing that to charitable purposes or organizations.

Sounds about right
post #22 of 28
No... and when I was little I tried to give up things and it never worked out for me. Meh.
post #23 of 28
Yes, SEX well since I haven't had it for years I guess it will be easy to give up Seriously tho, tho I am Catholic I have not done the Lent thing in years, I know I'm bad.
post #24 of 28
not religious here either, so not giving anything up, but I did quit smoking at the beginning of the year! I love the seafood specials we have at work for Lent though
post #25 of 28
Nope, nothing to give up here...and besides Im not catholic.
post #26 of 28
I will be giving up triggers that affect my weightloss/health, but not for Lent because I am not Catholic.
post #27 of 28
i promise to give up giving up things
post #28 of 28
I thought it was the period before Easter, when Christ had not yet risen from the dead. But it's been sooo long that I really can't remember. Obviously, it's fallen out of my families traditions! Look it up in Wilkepedia. I sure have to!
