House still under rennovations but I hope to have it all finished by Easter. You know Easter signals the true briginning of Spring and we step out in our Easter best, bonnets, dresses, shoes, suits the works. It's the annual unofficial Easter Fashion shows at the various churches so I working on that deadline. Nevertheless, I just wanted to peek in and wish folks a Happy Good Friday.
Speaking of which. Any Good Friday traditions in yur part of the world? In Barbados we have a few as seen here in The Nation Some traditions remain diehard while others fade with the time.
I vividly remember the no going to the Beach on Good Friday. Boy that was a definite for the villagers, don't dare be caught near the beach. Also the breaking a fresh egg out in the sun at pricesly midday. whatever shape the eggs form is your destiny for the coming year. Eg. a ship or anything resembling a boat means you going away.
Of course there is the traditional, no red meat eating on Good Friday. Right now I got my fish all seasoned and marinating reading for a nice baking stuffed with some shrimp later today.
Then they wouldn't be Easter without kite flying on Easter Monday. and all throughout the season. But making those kites and having them sky high was the thing to do. Now, kites are commercial made, but in time gone by they were magnigicantly hand made by the neighborhood boys, and the competition was who could make the largest or prettiest kite. Not to mention the fellas who would let their kites fly at night. Ahhh the Good ole days of growing up in the Caribbean.
Happy Good Friday & Easter fellow bloggers!!!!
