March 6th marks Ash Wednesday which is celebrated by many people.
The purpose is to give something up you cherish for the 40 day period known as Lent. So in this case from March 6th to April 18th.
Many people give up their favorite foods, a favorite activity, a bad habit, and many other ordeals. This year I've decided to give up alcohol for 40 days.
For those of you who are doing the same, the temptation of going back to what you enjoy doing may arise, but it will benefit your health, wallet, and productivity.
Let me know what you're giving up for the season of Lent in the comments below on our facebook page.
