It is the most solemn fast day in the Christian year - the only day more important is Easter Sunday, but that is a day of celebration so we can do what we want!

So on Good Friday we should be in mourning and prayer and not doing anything for funor entetainment. Although personally I usually go to Church on the Thursday night, and then on the Friday morning, but kind of give up the high level of devotion by after lunch. I think it is the temptation of the Hot Cross Buns!

*laughs* !

And this is all Christians, or just Catholic? Because I grew up Protestants, and we've never really fasted or given anything up for Lent or such things.

Definitely Protestants too - although I'm sure it is a major thing for Catholics.

I am an Elder of a Reformed Church - we are pretty laid-back Protestants. Actually at Church we encourage the young people to take up something for Lent, rather than giving it up - but my teen-aged daughter has a distinctly Calvinist streak and always gives one of her pleasures up - this year it is wine.

We share our good Friday Service with a local Methodist church, and the Anglican one next door will also be having a solemn communion service on the same day - so fairly much a Protestant thing.

Good Friday is also the only day, apart from Christmas Day, that we have no postal deliveries etc.

But if this is more a localised and European thing than an American thing then SUV's American managers of LJ wouldn't think of it having any effect on their figures for the day.
