It's that time again!
Lent begins on March 5 (Ash Wednesday). It's an approximately six-week period in which Christians give up something, usually rich food, to show penitence for the death of Jesus and to emulate his example. Some non-Christians take part just to see how long they can go without their favourite things.
Here are a few luxuries that you can probably go without until April 17 (Holy Thursday), though keep in mind, Lent also extends to April 20 (Easter Sunday) in some denominations.
