Being a Roman Catholic, myself and my family participate in Lent every year. Lent is “a 40 day session of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends at sundown on Good Friday.” During Lent, I choose not to eat meat on Friday’s. Instead, I either eat some kind of fish (usually a white fish) or different kinds of seafood. Along with giving up eating meat, I try and give up something else during Lent. It can literally be anything you want. For example, in the past I have given up drinking coffee (which was very difficult), eating fast food, social media, and other things as well. I will be honest, there are some times where I forget about it and accidentally eat meat on Friday or use what I have chose to give up during Lent. But, for the most part I try my very best to adhere to these limitations during Lent.
