What Kalamazoo Is Giving Up For Lent
Tess & Heather are giving up one of their favorite things for 40 days and 40 nights. What will Kalamazoo give up?
Even if you don't practice Catholicism, it;s good for you to go without something you love for a little while. It'll sure make you appreciate it more once you get it back.
According to umc.org,
"Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Holy Saturday. Lent comes from the Anglo Saxon word lencten, which means "spring." The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry."
We decided to give something up for Lent so I decided to give up chocolate (GULP) and Heather decided to give up coffee. I give her props for getting up at 3am every morning for work and giving up COFFEE. What will you give up?
