Lent begins February 22 and Easter Sunday is April 8.
For myself, Great Lent begins February 27 and Pascha (Easter Sunday) is on April 15.

Do you have any plans?

Do you make any special observances during the Lenten cycle?

How many bags of Cadbury Mini Eggs and boxes of Peeps will you purchase?

I have not made final Lent plans. Sometimes I give something up, and other times I don't. All depends on where I am being led.

I don't like Cadbury Eggs and I think Peeps are dis.gus.ting. So, no boxes!

My mom's birthday is on Easter, so we will go to Easter service and have an Easter dinner/birthday party.

I typically observe Lent as a season of self-examination. Most years I don't give up something since that strikes me as legalistic. Last year, however, I tried giving up two things. I was successful with one but not the other, so I likely won't go down that road again this year.

Zero and zero. I don't eat them.

I make Easter dioramas with Peeps--I can't eat them after they've fossilized.

Cadbury Mini Eggs are my downfall.

Are you kidding? That's the only way to eat Peeps! That's why I was so disappointed with the sugar free ones I bought, they didn't get crispy. Kinda scary when you think about it.

The glory of these forty days
We celebrate with songs of praise;
For Christ, by Whom all things were made,
Himself has fasted and has prayed.

Alone and fasting Moses saw
The loving God Who gave the law;
And to Elijah, fasting, came
The steeds and chariots of flame.

So Daniel trained his mystic sight,
Delivered from the lions' might;
And John, the Bridegroom's friend, became
The herald of Messiah's Name.

Then grant us, Lord, like them to be
Full oft in fast and prayer with Thee;
Our spirits strengthened with Thy grace,
And give us joy to see Thy face.

O Father, Son, and Spirit blest,
To thee be every prayer addressed.
Who art in threefold Name adored,
From age to age, the only Lord.
--Attributed to Gregory I, 6th century

"O Death, where is your sting?
O Hell, where is your victory?
Christ is risen, and you are overthrown.
Christ is risen, and the demons are fallen.
Christ is risen, and the angel rejoice.
Christ is risen, and life reigns.
Christ is risen, and not one dead remains in the grave.
For Christ, being risen from the dead, is become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep."
--Saint John Chrysostom, Paschal Sermon
