I won't. I'm not going to miss it this year.
Last year, I sort of missed it. Not in the same way that I currently miss Christmas, but in the way that it came and went and there wasn't a whole lot of focus given to it.
To Easter. [Really, Mariah? you just missed it? The day that makes your faith alive? Really?]
Yep. I just ate chocolate eggs and went on with my life.
And I regretted it.
And then I vowed not to let it happen to me again.
Unfortunately, Lent has snuck up on me again this year. Today is Fat Tuesday, the day before Lent (I believe...?). And although i don't much pay attention to the goings on of the Catholic Church, I do believe that some of their rituals are beautiful and spiritual and worth paying attention to. And I think Lent may be the very thing I need to not miss Easter this year.
But I don't know much about Lent, how to "do" Lent, what good resources (books, study guides, etc.) are out there concerning the whole idea of Easter and it's solemnness. And I don't have much time to find out. So if you know, or could direct me to someone who does, please share. Or if you do something special, give up something special, or have some tradition, I'd love to know about that, too!

And if you have some extra chocolate eggs, feel free to share those, too.
