Kids are out of school and many folks are off from work because of Good Friday.
KLFY’s Kellie Brown caught up with some Acadiana residents to find out what their Good Friday traditions are.
“Our tradition on Good Friday is to go out for crawfish, of course. Then go to church in the evening and then maybe go get crawfish again.” Says Chuck Pickett.
Easter Sunday is just a days away and for Christians, this day and weekend is set aside to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
Anthony Lee says he enjoys boiling seafood for his family but he can’t forget the reason for the season.
“You got to keep Jesus in it because without him none of this would be happening.”
Many residents fast from meat on Good Friday Catherine Franques tells News 10 seafood is a tradition.
“This is a tradition because we all love crawfish and we all love to come and eat here and it’s always a fun time.”
Having good weather on Good Friday is also a plus, Zuckey Prejean says rain or shine this is a day to spend with family.
“It’s a blessed day, even if the weather is good or bad, every day we wake up is a blessed day, but today is a beautiful day, beautiful time for our families to come out and enjoy ourselves.”
