Good Friday



Good Friday, a significant date in the Christian calendar, is observed in the UK as a solemn commemoration of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Falling on the Friday before Easter Sunday, it is a day of reflection and religious observance for many Christians across the nation. Church services often include readings of the Passion of Christ and special hymns, with some churches holding processions or re-enactments of the crucifixion.

Despite its religious roots, Good Friday in the UK also has secular recognition, as it’s a public holiday, giving many people a day off work. Traditional customs include eating hot cross buns, which are marked with a cross and symbolise the crucifixion. Good Friday’s sombre tone sets the stage for the contrasting joy of Easter, highlighting themes of sacrifice and redemption central to Christian belief.
