I usually give up beef, because I so enjoy a good steak or hamburger. Last year I also gave up chocolate bunnies---after Ash Wednesday, I bought one (a Busy Bigby) to save for Easter Sunday. I think I'll do that again this year.
Back home we didn't do anything special to observe Lent (except eat kinklings
), but since Mr. gives up something for Lent, I do too, to keep him company.
