While I rarely find myself in churches these days (aside from playing tourist or attending weddings), there is one religious tradition that I do like to partake in – Lent.
Beginning on Ash Wednesday, the 46 days before Easter are treated slightly differently depending on where you have been brought up. During this period, many folk in the UK tend to forfeit something they enjoy, with two prime examples being chocolate or alcohol.
This year I have chosen fast food, and it’s proving much more difficult than I thought it would. I’m extremely partial to a pizza now and again and find it extremely hard to walk past a burger van without at least having a little peek inside to see what’s on offer.
But if it was an easy task then it would defeat the purpose of it. So here’s hoping I can hold out till Easter, then enjoy my next pizza with a large dose of satisfaction.
