To Give Up or Not Give Up…THAT is the Question

Ahh Fat Tuesday, the final day before the start of Lent where people around the world get blind drunk and expose themselves publicly as one last hurrah before the start of Lent.

I was born and raised Catholic so for most of my life it has been drilled into my head that when Lent rolls around I am to give something up for 40 days and that I am not to eat any type of meat on Fridays. As the years have passed by, I’ve become more and more…let’s say “lazy” about the whole thing to the point where I couldn’t tell you the last time I consciously gave something up and remembered not to eat meat on Fridays.

Somewhere buried within this article is question about organized religion, but I’ll leave that to another post at another time. Right now I want to ask you, whether you’re Catholic or not, are you giving something up for Lent this year? If so, what? If you’re not giving anything up, why? Or do you think this is an outdated tradition?
