I'm giving up snacking! Though to be honest, as I'm trying to lose weight, I don't really snack anyway. Oh well...

That's like saying you don't believe in summer, or something like that! Lent a season in the Church ecclesiastical year, just like Advent or Easter...

NO!!!!!! You couldn't be further from the truth! It's the official name for the ecclesiastical season leading up to Christmas. It officially starts on the Sunday four weeks before Christmas (I think), but people generally just take it to mean the 24 days in December before Christmas Day. That's why Advent calendars don't go beyond Christmas Day. Advent is, essentially, the period of looking forward to the birth of Christ - this is downplayed in modern-day, secular society.

How can anyone not have heard of Advent??? :confused: *Looks gobsmacked*

I might give up chocolate. I did it a few years ago and managed. I don't know how I'll be able to cope without Kinder Beunos though!
