What Are You Giving Up For Lent?

Give you some background context for this randomness. 

For all those who don't know what Lent is... It is a religious observance in the religion for Christianity. Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Thursday in the Roman Catholic Church. This is in preparation of catholics through prayer, penance and recognizing their sins which lead into Good Friday (Jesus' Death) to Easter Sunday (the resurrection of Jesus Christ)

During this time, many Roman Catholics give up something they love for lent which lasts until Easter (celebration) and it is roughly six weeks. 

This year Ash Wednesday is on March 5 and Easter Sunday is on April 20. 

I am planning to give up many things: 
  • No Make-Up buying
  • No Junk food 
  • No Alcohol 
  • (No Meat is something you should already be doing)
