I have always thought this idea was completely lame. I mean, if you're going to make a sacrifice during Lent, MAKE A SACRIFICE! Is it really that difficult? Anyhow, this year we made a compromise, we left the decision to observe Sundays of Lent with sacrificial penance a personal choice, rather than a family devotion. Some of us are continuing to give up our desserts, etc., on Sundays, others are not. I guess some of us are just holier than others and have greater will power--hopefully ya'll know I'm just kidding :-)
What do you think, is this tradition silly? What does your family do on Sundays during Lent?
