I've always liked the idea that Christianity has "baptized" some pagan festivals and holidays - using them to celebrate our own related concepts within the faith. But I also like that Lent is still relatively free of secular commercial exploitation.

Like you said, self-denial just doesn't blend well with materialism does it?
