Today is Ash Wednesday and Christians of many denominations observe the beginning of Lent today by giving up a luxury of some sort for the next 40 days. What are you giving up?
Christians of many denominations began today with the observance of Ash Wednesday, the traditional beginning of Lent. Others are simply nursing the effects of Fat Tuesday. Over the next 46 days until Easter, Christians are asked to give up a luxury they often enjoy. Some give up meat or video games, while others (my husband's grandmother for one) always gave up candy. In recent years, the Boston Archdiocese of the Catholic Church, has asked that instead of giving up something, parishioners take on something new, such as a charity work or contributing to their communities.
