    My understanding of Lent is also limited. Maybe a Catholic forum member could explain in more detail to us. I also want to know why people resume what they "gave up" after Easter. If you can stick it out for 40 days, why not give it up completely. Also a good point, Pak, on the public service.

    I don't think Lent is just for Catholics. My friend's son isn't Catholic.

    I think symbolic activities don't have as much impact as actually DOING something does.


    BTW...I love your second sig quote. That's hilarious.

    It's not hard for me to stick to my sacrifices during lent. I give up the same thing every year and this year will be no different, I'm giving up lent.

    It was Rainn Wilson's character (Dwight Shrute) on NBC's The Office. He's a paper salesman/beet farmer/ex-volunteer shariff's deputy.
