I told my wife that I had decided to give up sex for Lent this year. She reminded me I did that 3 years ago and forgot to start again.

What did you give up?

As a Catholic child in the fifties, Lent was a very important time.
Having visited church on the morning of Ash Wednesday to receive my forehead smudge, we were encouraged to make a sacrifice for Lent, which was difficult for me because we had nothing that we could 'give-up'....and so the tradition continues !

Christianity is what I gave up for Lent about sixty five years ago.

I'm with you pops - a galvanised atheist. In one way a bad decision - we don't get all the holidays.
