Every year Christians give up something for 40 days during Lent leading up to Easter. This report has revealed what New Jersey gave up this year.

Growing up Catholic, I remember always giving up something practical like candy, or 'lying.' Then again I was 10 and we know neither of that wasn't ever going to happen.

So what are we adult Christians giving up for Lent this year?


ATTN: has released a map of the United States showing what each state has given up this year. Turns out the most popular things are the following:

  • social media
  • sweets
  • alcohol
  • sex and dating
  • internet
  • meat
  • food
  • coffee
  • other

WHO is giving up COFFEE? Those brave souls. At least the 40 days are almost up.
