Good Friday

In my native tongue, it’s called Long Friday. As kids, we were not allowed to do anything on this day. If we complained about it to mum, she just replied that when she was a kid, she had to wear black bows in her hair, so we really had nothing to complain about. They weren’t even religious … well, perhaps my grandma was, I wouldn’t know.

Today: Dense fog and drizzle … how appropriate!

    We didn’t have any special rules and went to church every Sunday but Easter was special because we usually had dinner with family and colored eggs to hide.

    Yesterday’s weather was more the “Good Friday type”, starting out damp and dreary; with clouds roiling about and finally bringing a steady, bone-chilling rain…
    Today however, is gorgeous! Only slightly overcast and perfect for washing and giving the car it’s first coat of wax for the year.
    Hope your weather clears up soon and your weekend is joyful: )
    (And apparently we’ve got light snow in the forecast for tonight… )

      Turned out to be quite a lovely day here, late in the afternoon. Was making supper so didn’t go out to take advantage of it. Snow or rain for tonight … doesn’t matter. It has started! Hope you can view the page okay now.

    Torrential rain here for almost a week, and predicted to continue over the Easter weekend too. It doesn’t keep people off the wet and slippery roads though, and already there have been accidents occurring on the motorways. As for me, I stay at home until the madness on the roads is over.

      Wow, you really get some wild weather there! We’re staying at home too, taking it easy … If it turns out nice tomorrow, I must get out with the camera. I’ve missed that!

      Yes, except the fasting. The meal had to be fish, not meat. The fasting had gone on a number of weeks before, but I don’t know much about that.

    Yes Long Fridays sure used to feel Loooooooooong way back. Used to be a very boring day when stores were closed. They are always open these days, holidays or not!

    Long Friday what an intersting name for Good Friday.
    Can you imagine just ‘not’ doing anything all day???? Some customs are very odd aren’t they Rebby?

        If one went to Church/Temple or spent time in quiet contemplation it would make sense. But to just have a day doing nothing seems odd….lol..
