What to Give Up for Lent What to give up for Lent will be different for different people. I believe the idea is to give up something that is important to you. For example, if you absolutely love to eat, you could fast. It could also be something that you promise God you will do every day, like reci…ting the Rosary or reading a certain number of chapters in the Bible. Others may feel that adjusting their spending habits, going without for a time and giving to those who have less are worthwhile sacrifices fitting to the season. The whole point is that it be meaningful, not just something that really doesn't mean much to you. WHAT YOU LIKE! Most people give up - pop, fries, candy, sweets, chocolate, chips TRY GIVING UP COFFEE OR AT LEAST CAFFEEINE FREE COFFEE!! (MORE)

Lent is a series of weeks leading up to Easter. People who celebrate Lent believe that at the end of Lent, Jesus died and on the third day was resurrected. Fasting and giving up things is done to symbolically remember Jesus's suffering and death for all humanity. On Easter, there are big celebration…s and then you can resume the things you gave up. --- That is, if they still seem as important or useful as they previously did. Roman Catholic Answer Because Our Blessed Lord went without food or water for forty days in the desert and did battle with Satan for your salvation. You are trying, in a small way, to imitate Our Blessed Lord, and to conform your life to His. We give up things for Lent to show sorrow for our sins. Also to repent from sin and to get closer with God. We give things up for Lent to make reparation to the Sacred Heart for our sins, and the sins of the world. We give things up for Lent to conform ourselves more closely to Our Blessed Savior. We give things up for Lent to please Almighty God. We give things up for Lent to help out our brothers and sisters. We give things up for Lent to become more perfect Christians. Answer But you don't always have to give up, you can add. You can add by maybe going to adoration, or working for a charity, or giving to the rice bowl. (MORE)
I've decided to give up sweets and chocolate. If you are looking for some ideas just pick something you really like!
The decision is yours, but here are some suggestions: (Note that it is forty days and forty nights, so pick something you can last that long without) . A game device . Sugary foods or drinks . TV . Reading after bed . Complaining
because Jesus went into the desert for 40 days to fast and pray. he gave up food, so you give up something that is important to you or that you use on a daily basis to kind of mimick Jesus' sacrafice of food.
So they can give up things to focus more on God and your relationship with Him.
On Easter Sunday. Also, Lent doesn't count on any Sunday. Some people also choose to eat what they gave up after 12 PM on Holy Saturday in preparation for the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. Answer Well, look at it this way: Back in the 1930's and 40's, Lent officially ended at noon on Hol…y Saturday. When and why it was changed to Lent ending at midnight on Holy Saturday, I don't know, but over the years it changed for some reason. So, if you want to follow "the old way", Lent was over at noon Saturday April 23rd. Roman Catholic Answer The depends entirely on what you decide. "Giving up something" for Lent is a purely personal gift that you make to God, it is not required by the Church. If you are giving up some food, keep in mind that Sundays are never, ever considered fast days, along with any major feast - St. Joseph and the Annunciation (plus St. Patrick's Day if you live in Ireland). Also, Lent ends with the beginning of the Mass of the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday evening, so no matter what you gave up for Lent, Lent is over in the evening of Thursday of Holy Week. Thursday evening, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are NOT part of Lent, they are their own special season - the shortest of the liturgical year, the Triduum. Remember, giving up something for Lent is a personal decision between you and God (and your confessor or spiritual director). You can give up whatever you thing would be best for you and/or what you think God would like you to give up. If you want to change your mind, mention it in confession and ask your priest for his advice, remember he speaks for God, as he has been ordained God's priest. (MORE)

Three main components of culture: 1) "Language is a system of signs, sounds, gestures, and marks that have meanings understood within a cultural group. People communicate the cultural values they care about through language, and the words themselves tell something about where different cultural grou…ps are located" (Rubenstein 24). 2) "Religion is an important cultural value because it is the principle system of attitudes, beliefs, and practices through which people worship in a formal, organized way" (Rubenstein 24). 3) "Ethnicity encompasses a group's language, religion, and other cultural values, as well as its physical traits. A group possess these cultural and physical characteristics as a product of its common traditions and heredity" (Rubenstein 24). Rubenstein, James.

because Lent is the time that Christ went 40 days and 40 nights without eating or drinking in the dessert.. it is also a time of preparation for the death and rising of Christ. For Lutherans, it is a time of cleansing and renewal of their lives. Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, begins the ti…me to repent, confess sins and return to God. Rather than giving up dessert, congregants are encouraged to take up caring for other people--donating time, goods or money to those in need.
