I did ask my boss if I could give up work for 40 days of lent. His answer wasn't very Christian like I must say.

Restraint and maturity. Just messaged another hot looking guy off* because I feel like some attention.

I figured I could offer my dismay at Brexit up to Jesus to cover it. I'm a Catholic- we fudge it after a bit .

Alcohol - do it most years and always feel great for it.

9 yr old DS is giving up school apparently and DD (7) is giving up the IPad.....hmm

Chocolate. Nothing to do with Lent though, I'm an atheist; it's because I'm on a LCHF diet.

Nothing, but my work colleagues and several friends have all commented that I have no resistance to cheese.

I might try to give up chocolate, but they sell such lovely little Easter eggs loose here in Belgium, and I've just bought a shed load of chocolate back from Vienna.....

Ex church goer and been conned into giving up enough of life's pleasures to cover a lifetime's worth of Lents.

Whatever it is, you better eat it quick, as it's the last you'll see of it for 40 days and 40 nights.

What are you giving up for Lent? grin
