What to give up this lent season

This year, however, let us also consider other things that we can give up.

By Bernard Busobozi 

Lent in the Christian church is a period of reflection and preparation before the celebration of Easter. By observing the 40 days of lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ's sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.

Many of us try to be more disciplined during the lent period. We give up some of those things we like. The most important tradition of Lent is fasting. People give up on certain foods as a  sign of sacrifice.

This year, however, let us also consider other things that we can give up.
