Lent is a religious holiday celebrated in the Catholic Church for forty days prior to Easter. The observance begins on Ash Wednesday and goes until Easter Sunday. Traditionally, it is a period of time when worshippers deny themselves something to commemorate the sacrifice made by Jesus Christ. That being said, I was raised Catholic and still give up something for Lent. However, it has become a source of inventiveness with me to give up non-traditional sacrifices. Many people will give up meat or smoking or coffee during the forty days, but I try to go for something that is a bit long-lasting, while being somewhat (at least in my mind) humorous. For all of my Catholic friends out there that are stuck on what to give up for Lent this year, why not try some of these “sacrifices”. While they may be funny and a little absurd, each of them has a special meaning and is not intended to poke fun at religion.
If you have seen the news lately, you probably have heard about Valeria Lukyanova, the Ukrianian model they call “The Living Barbie”. She is currently on a diet where she wants to live on sunshine and air. This crazy diet is called, Inedia, and has been in practice for several decades.

It is a dangerous way of losing weight and if you are considering such a radical approach to “health”, you should see a doctor so he can slap you. As ludicrous as this diet sounds, it is not the only diet of its caliber available. I scoured the internet and have found five of the scariest diets for you to avoid.

Presidents’ Day is celebrated as a federal holiday on the third Monday in February. It is usually commemorated in the United States by the closure of government offices, no school, and plenty of mattress sales. However, if you ask people what the holiday is about, you might be surprised by some of the answers. For instance, which President is being remembered? By the name, you might think it is all Presidents of the United States. The apostrophe at the end of the word would indicate that its meaning is plural – as in more than one President. However, some people spell it President’s Day, meaning one President. It’s all very confusing. Here are the answers to some perplexing questions on this national holiday.
