Lent is supposed to be a time of spiritual awakening. A time where you give up something you have become attached to and use that extra space or time in your life to grow closer to God and become a better person. Sometimes though people don't take it seriously at all. On a recent list of 'what most people are giving up for Lent', Lent showed up on the list at number 12! Other silly answers that made it in the list are Netflix, you, boys, and their virginity (which is actually kind of funny...but not at all close to the purpose of Lent).

Here are the top 5 things people are giving up for Lent.

  1. School
  2. Chocolate
  3. Twitter
  4. Social Networking
  5. Alcohol
