For those like me that are Catholic, Lent began today. A day of fasting and abstinence.  I remember as a kid, we always had to tell our religion teachers what we were going to give up for lent. Like stop arguing with your parents, candy, pop, etc. What did you give up? My Mom always talked about how  they had to fast all day. Or they would only eat a light supper. And there is no meat on Fridays.  Now days for those that still observe the day, there is still no meat but there are fish fry's everywhere. Some churches do soup suppers where meatless soups are served, with bread and sometimes something for dessert. The important thing is that we remember what the season of lent is about and who died for us to save us.
