Some Christians (usually Catholics) give up something like eating meat or sex. Just a form of sacrifice until Easter.
It's just that last week, I was dining with jeffdintexas
, and droxnar711
was wondering what he'll give up for Lent.
Me? I'm a non-practicing Catholic so I don't do those stuff.
Well for the past 8 years I gave up sex. ::shrugs::
Not really sure what to give up now.. I mean I pretty much lost everything. Maybe give up sex again???
Damnit, I was gonna say that! ;p
You cant give up lent for lent.. that'd mean you do lent ALL YEAR ROUND. Give up something you kinda do but dont do. I know people who swore off Madonna for 40 days. That or bad pornos..
Are you gonna be on vacation?
As a recovering catholic and atheist, i can do all the "fun" rituals (Mardi Gras, Xmas, Easter) and call it "ironic" and not have to do any of the "unfun" things like giving up stuff, sitting through boring services or having to run around with a dirty forehead. i used to HATE that as a kid...YUCK!!
Yeah. I hear ya.
I remember all those "no meat" days.
The fun stuff is always good. :-)
Being the Big'Ol Pagan that I am I guess don't quite get Lint. I mean, come on. My dryer produces tons of the stuff. I can't wash a single thing (t-shirt, towel, small kitten) without getting a hand full of the stuff. You could knit a small Yak with all the Lint that that machine produces. So I'm supposed to give up something in honor of this stuff? So why don't dust bunnies get a religious holiday? Why don't we give up anything for "dishes with water spots"? I don't get it...
[Having an Emily La Tella moment...]
I bet you get some on your belly button. :-)
