Ash Wednesday is here and many Christians will be observing for 46 days before Easter Sunday. Many Christians will be giving up things like eggs, fatty foods, sugar and meat until then.

Believe it or not when some Hudson Valley residents were surveyed, the most common things they are giving up are caffeine and alcohol. Could you give these up?

are you participating in Lent this year?
