Do you celebrate it? What are you giving up? For those of you who don't know, Lent is the 40 days before Easter. A time of cleansing for Christians. Generally, the tradition is to give up something you do often or a bad habit for forty days to refocus you mind on God. I'm giving up swearing. This should be hard for me. P.S. Please please please please don't turn this into a religion fight.
