Fish Tradition for Easter

Tradition says that fish is the meal of choice on Good Friday although many won’t know the reason for Fish Tradition on Good Friday.

Christians have abstained from eating meat on Good Friday for centuries and many people, religious or not, choose to eat fish on the Friday before Easter Sunday. It’s a tradition that stems back to Roman Catholic customs of old to not eat the flesh of warm-blooded animals on Fridays, to acknowledge the death of Jesus.

Meat, in ancient cultures, was seen as a delicacy and therefore a worthy sacrifice and only slaughtered when there was something to celebrate. But fish was seen as an ‘everyday thing’, especially as most people were fishermen.

Times have changed considerably with many people viewing fish as the more luxury item today.

The fish tradition is as much a part of Easter as chocolate eggs and the Easter bunny, only this tradition goes back much further.
