What not to do on Good Friday?
The most severe and sad day of Holy Week is Good Friday. This day is dedicated to the memories of the day of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is on this day that the strictest fast is observed.
Good Friday is a special day when you should refrain from eating until the time when the Shroud is taken out. Only then can you eat bread and drink water. Easter preparations should end on Pure Thursday. This is necessary so that on Great Friday nothing distracts from services and prayers.
To spend this day by all the rules, without violating certain rules and canons, you need to know what not to do. Good Friday will be calm if you stick to our advice.
On this day, it is strictly forbidden to engage in any economic affairs, and especially to wash, sew or cut anything. It is considered a great sin if you violate this prohibition. On the day of Good Friday, it is even forbidden to wash.
In addition, it is not allowed to walk, sing, as well as to hold or attend various entertainment events. Good Friday is extremely undesirable to work. You should postpone all your business the next day or try to do it in advance.
In ancient Russia, on this day, it was customary to treat your loved ones, acquaintances, neighbors, or simply poor people with milk, cottage cheese, eggs, bread, and, of course, festive baking. Now, on Good Friday, it is customary to distribute alms to those in need, to perform as many good deeds as possible.
In conclusion, I would like to say that misfortunes happen on this day mainly with very doubtful people who constantly wind themselves up and think about the bad. Try to relax, follow our advice and this day will be successful.
