Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday.
On Good Friday, the Crucifixion of Christ is commemorated. It is traditionally a day of fasting and penance. The law of abstinence requires Christians abstaining from eating meat on Fridays in honour of the Passion of Jesus on Good Friday. Since a lot of Nigerian meals involve the use of meat, we decided to give you a list of meals you can eat on Good Friday, as you reflect.
