TODAY IS ASH Wednesday, traditionally seen as the first day of Lent.

After indulging on a pancake or two yesterday, this Christian tradition sees the start of the 40-day lead in to Easter where many aim to test themselves and give up something during this time.

Will you be one of them?

Today, we’re asking you: Are you giving something up for Lent?

Poll Results:

No (7403)
Yes (5082)
No interest/No opinion (1342)
