Anyways, in all seriousness, I've never observed lent in my life, since I see no Biblical basis for it; so no reason to start now.
If someone can provide a Biblical argument for why this tradition is necessary, then I'd love to hear it. To me it just smacks of works-based salvation or an attempt to make ourselves worthy of GOD, which we all know is totally impossible.
Its supposed to Reflect the forty days of Christ in the Wilderness, before his ministry...did you even bother to listen to the video?
is the temptation of Christ not biblical enough for your Nathan
