Wearing black, hot cross buns; 7 interesting Good Friday traditions

Kite flying

In the Caribbean nation of Bermuda, a local tradition regarding Good Friday is to fly kites, normally with a cross as part of the design.

According to legend, a Sunday School teacher used a kite to illustrate to his students how Jesus ascended into Heaven.

“Good Friday to most Bermudians is about flying kites on the beaches, enjoying festive atmosphere and having traditional Codfish Breakfast & Cakes,” noted bermuda-attractions.com.

“Initially the kite flying was done only after 3 p.m. in the afternoon. However these days you will see the kites flying all day long. Entry to the Kite Festival is free.”
