10 Rockford Things You Can’t Give up for Lent
Lent begins tomorrow, March 1st; have you given any thought to what you'll be giving up for the following forty days?
Quick history lesson for anyone who doesn't know what Lent is: it's the time when Christians honor the sacrifices of Jesus, specifically the time when he spent 40 days in the desert; fighting temptation from Satan.
Fast forward to 2017 and people from all walks of life, no matter what religion, make a promise for Lent, to abstain from things like swearing, social media and probably the most difficult things- food and alcohol.
Well, I'm no quitter, so for Lent I won't be giving up anything; especially these 10 Rockford things that are nearly impossible to go without for 40 days and 40 nights.
