Lent: What are students giving up?

Lent is the 40-day season of repentance and reflection in preparation for Easter. Many Christians give up something or do activities that help them get closer to God. Lent starts March 9 with Ash Wednesday and ends at sunset April 21 with Holy Thursday.

  1. Giving up sweatshirts and jackets when the average low in Minneapolis is 18 and average high is 41 seems slightly unreasonable.

  2. I think giving up a jacket for Lent is an amazing idea!! I want to do that next year for sure.
