Does everyone have fish on Good Friday?

It never crossed my mind but we are not at all religious. I think it is quite traditional if you are though. We had Mexican - only traditional food in our house this time of year is chocolate smile

I wonder why we traditionally eat fish on a Friday. When I was at school we had fish and chips on a Friday too. Brightwell - well done on resisting hot cross buns till good Friday! We have them as soon as they hit the shops!!

I am in scotland too (near glasgow) but the school dinners at dd's alternate fish and chips between a Thursday and Friday each week even though it is a combined campus with a Catholic school and non-denominational school on the same site.

We did, but it was a cooincidence. Friday is quite often fish night though, not for religious reasons but I guess it's quite culturally ingrained up here (Glasgow). School dinners were always fish on a Friday (not Catholic).

Never heard of it until reading another thread on here.

Hot cross buns for breakfast

Curry for dinner - chicken

nope, we hardly ever have fish as i dont like it much. The kids didnt even have fish fingers! Not catholic, christian or anything else though so it doesnt matter to us.

We did!

I always have, and we don't have hot cross buns until Good Friday.

Nope, i didn't. Because, although raised Catholic, i'm not a believer in anything.

We do - it almost feels like the 'law' like turkey on Christmas day! But is this a common tradition or a bit outdated?
