Do you celebrate the Lenten season? Do you give up anything for Lent? Do you get ashes put on your forehead?
I do! I hope to get ashes later on, but my son is sick and I am getting sick so I hope we feel better enough to go. I'm not really sure what to give for lent. My husband is giving up beer ( good boy) I don't really drink so it wouldn't make sense to give up say wine. My oldest son is five and I don't expect him or my younger kids to give up anything, but he wants to give up candy! I'm a proud momma. But I'm not sure what I should give up!
I am not Catholic, so I don't celebrate it, but I am interested in learning more about it.
ugh I am sad, no ashes, I am working all day and can't get to mass even for lunch. Luckily my DS goes to Catholic school so he will get his this afternoon. This year I am gonna give up my naps , only because i have napped every day even for 30+ minutes since my son was born, I am always so tired, just exhausted so I wanna do something during that time thats more productive.
No to all. I am a Baptist, so we don't celebrate the Lenten season. Could you explain to me what denomenations celebrate Lent and the purpose for it besides giving stuff up?
Yes. My husband took our youngest son to mass this morning, and I'm hoping to make it to church tonight. Most years I go in the morning before school, but this year I have an early class and couldn't go.
We're all giving up eating out - no fast food or sit down restaurants. We won't even drive through for a drink. We're also going to read through our Lenten prayer book each evening as a family and discuss it.
No, we are non-denominational, so we don't celebrate Lent.
