Track in Real Time What People Are Giving Up for Lent in 2019

See the top 100 things people are giving up for Lent in 2019 on Twitter, continually updated until March 9, 2019. You can also use the Historical Lent Tracker to see trends since 2009, though 2019 is still in flux, so I wouldn’t draw any conclusions about 2019 yet.

As I write this post, with about 1,500 tweets analyzed, perennial favorites “social networking,” “alcohol,” and “twitter” lead the list. If I had to guess, with an unusually cold February across much of the U.S., weather might feature more prominently this year than last year, when Ash Wednesday coincided with Valentine’s Day.

Look for the usual post-mortem on March 10, 2019.
