Stemming from my Catholic upbringing we are, of course, having fish for tea :-)

For about a 10 year period when I was living as a hermit I would shave my beard on Good Friday and go barefoot. Mrrzy, it's called Good because of Christ's Sacrifice.


PS: regarding going barefoot; went over a year barefoot once and let me tell you it's a very good way to learn not to step in anything unpleasant.

It's a Good Friday (and Christmas Eve) tradition for Bude Morrisons to be filled (or overfilled) with nasty, grabbing, pushing and shoving hordes of people. I think they were mostly emmets. (Note to self: you never learn, Shaw. Avoid!!)

I've just heard a belter. Christ did not give up his life for our sins, he only gave up his weekend because he cane back on Sunday :-D

I've just realised that the reason the Lancaster mummers could not do the Maritime festival on Good Friday was that they were all members of John o' Gaunt Morris and were out on their Good Friday tour, dancing at Milnthorpe and Arnside.

The sun beat down on Heptonstall this afternoon! Both the Heptonstall and Midgley Pace Eggers performed enthusiastically, while the Hebden Bridge Hill Millies entertained in between. Much appreciated by the watching crowd. Money raised for charities. Well done, everybody!
