Lent begins tomorrow (2/22/2022) on Ash Wednesday, then lasts 40 days. It represents a time of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Depending on your faith, fasting during Lent can look like many things- whether you give up your favorite soda, or go meatless entirely. It's an extended meditation on sacrifice. And I think it's really beautiful.

Most modern Catholics abstain from "meat" on certain days:

 Summed up succinctly, Roman Catholics must fast and abstain from meat on Ash Wednesday, Wednesday, February 22, 2023 and Good Friday, April 7, 2023. Additionally, they must abstain from meat on all Fridays during Lent.
Meat, for this particular purpose, means "warm-blooded" animals and does not include seafood.
If this is observance you keep, I have compiled a list of Lubbock seafood favorites to take you beyond fast-food fried fish.
May your Lenten season be a beautiful and spiritually edifying experience for you.
