Lent began Wednesday, March 6 and ends on Easter. I personally do not participate in giving anything up for Lent, however I do love seeing what my friends choose to give up every year. Last year, social networking was the number one response among people asked what they were giving up for Lent.

So what's everyone giving up this year?
