That is fascinating, Felipa. Thank you. I wonder how some of these things come about?

I should have mentioned that my wife's family always referred to Spy Wednesday for the Wednesday in Holy Week. It was not a term I knew before meeting them.

Given Steve Roud often posts here, I am a bit wary of referencing his book "The English Year", but there are 6 and two bits pages of customs on Good Friday, then a few on Easter Saturday, followed by another substantial section for Easter Sunday and Monday.

For Good Friday, he specifically lists Bread and Eggs, Burning Judas, Butterworth Charity, Hartfield Dole, Hot Cross Buns, Skipping, Tinsley Green Marbles, Washing Molly Grime, Widow's Son and Workington Football (listing the section headings).

I had a hot cross buns for breakfast and will be having fish for tea. Although I did let down my Catholic upbringing by having some meat at lunchtime. Mea Culpa :-(

We also always used to perform the Pace Egg play on Good Friday and I believe that was the traditional time for it.

Not this year of course!

Any other Good Friday customs?
