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

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

Closed pubs

In the Republic of Ireland, a nation with a strong Catholic Christian history and heritage, it used to be illegal to sell alcohol on Good Friday.

In January 2018, Ireland passed a law allowing pubs to open on Good Friday, with many of them opting to be open on the holy day for the first time in nearly a century.

However, some pubs continue the tradition of remaining closed on Good Friday, with one owner telling the Irish Independent that most of his customers “would observe fasting on the day and stay off the drink anyway.”
