      Lent

      First off, I'm not Catholic, but I think that it's interesting to hear what different people gave up "for Lent." I know the reasoning behind it, but for me it's a specific time where I can practice moderation or better habits, kind of like a more potent New Years Resolution.

      I started late but I gave up elevators... to a degree. I mean, I'm not going to climb 20 floors if I don't have to, but I only live on the 5th floor of my building so it's good exercise, especially since we do it for Judo club.

      Anyway, is there anything you gave up or decided to do at this time?

      I gave up cakes and sugary food, but one day in I made some pancakes (real ones, not American ones :P). So oops, looks like I suck.

      I usually manage to do what I give up though.

      Hmm, I wonder if anyone has ever given up Catholocism for Lent?

      I've not given up anything this year, however, I have the greatest respect for what you are doing Ame! You are following the spirit of the law instead of the letter. Being a non-catholic and deciding to perform this as an act of love is really great!
      you must be the change you wish to see in the world...

      I'm not sure if this counts as giving up something in the spirit of a holiday, but since I came to the Netherlands I've given up all nasty American snack foods. Occasionally I'll indulge in a Dutch stroopwaffel but, really, who can blame me for that? I’ve also pretty much cut salt from my diet entirely.

      Because of it, I’ve lost a nice bit of weight and I’m starting to feel a little better about myself. ^_^

      My sister is Catholic and she said she gave up soda - but only colored soda, clear soda is fine. What the hell is that?? Soda is soda, no matter what color it is. I don't get it.

      I'm giving up lent this year. For god's sake, I'm not going to make my OWN life a misery by cutting down on things I like. That's for other people to do, like parents and politicians.
