Chocolate dilemma

It's strange when Lent and Valentine's Day intersect. I've made up treat bags with plenty of chocolate for college students, and will hand them out after church tomorrow. Although highlighting markers, notepads, and a handwritten note also will be included in the bags, chocolate's the prominent treat. It seems odd to think that I'm encouraging temptation, since so many people give up chocolate for Lent (and since I think chocolate's pretty hard to resist).

And, should someone wait for 40 days and 40 nights to eat it, will it taste dry and more like cardboard?

They could eat it to celebrate on a Sunday. . . I have to confess that although I am sure it declines a bit, I have eaten chocolate much later than that and still enjoyed it! But I have not a discriminating palate.

If you made it through the crash before Lent, you are eligible for chocolate during Lent.

Well, there you are!
