Poll: Did you stick to your Lent commitments?

Did you make it to the last day?

THE FINAL DAY of Lent was last Thursday, marking the end of the 40-day period during which many people choose to give up something they enjoy. 

For some it’s a useful excuse to cut something unhealthy out of their diet, while for many others Lent is a solemn Christian observance. 

Whatever your motivations, we want to know how you got on this year.

So, today we’re asking: Did you stick to your Lent commitments this year?

Poll Results:

No, I didn't give up anything this year (6596)
Yes, I made it all the way to the end (1882)
No, I tried but gave up before the last day (1012)
