Lent and Valentine’s Day are always close to each other but it has been more than 70 years since they have been on the same day. The coming together of these two dates has really rocked a few people to their core. Lent is a religious holiday that lasts 40 days and is marked with fasting and sacrificing pleasures and indulgences leading up to Easter. It has led to more than a few people reconsidering the things they are giving up for Lent because chocolate reigns supreme on this day. Here are a collection of tweets talking about the confusion and sadness people are experiencing as Valentine’s Day and Lent converge.

Valentine’s Day is about to get really sad for some people as many give up love for Lent.

Bruh. That’s savage. At least you have a plan for this joining of the two holidays.

Like, people everywhere are getting ready for their loved ones to just drop them.

Seems like these men think they are awfully funny all of a sudden.

One user is being unapologetic about her plan to live her best single life possible this year.

Alright, now.

But, wait. What about all the sweets Catholics said they were going to give up?

Chocolate and candies are everything on Valentine’s Day. How many times have you given up chocolate or candy for Valentine’s Day?

Some have started making deals with themselves.

Not a bad plan. As the saying goes, “It is better to ask for forgiveness than permission.”

But, mainly, people are just mourning the loss of candy to Lent.

It’s really going to be the ultimate test. But, you don’t have to give up sweets. You could give up other things you love as much as candy.

Especially super sale candies the day after Valentine’s Day.

Like, that’s the best day to buy your candy. It all has to go and stores are basically giving it away on that day.

Regular Valentine’s Day plans are being canceled.

It is a tragic day when you have to get rid of the special meal you share with your SO every year.

To be fair, some people are totally fine with giving things up on Valentine’s Day.

Well put.

And they are letting the world know that it really isn’t that big of a deal.

Very true.

But so many more people are feeling a little bit like this.

Let us know…
