What is Good Friday?
Good Friday marks the final day of Lent which is the 40-day observance in which Catholics abstain from eating meat on Fridays.
The holiday aims to recognize Jesus dying on the cross upon his crucifixion.
The Catholic Church dictates that all Catholics 14 and older must abstain from meat and meat products every Friday of Lent, including Good Friday, and Ash Wednesday.
In addition, Catholics between 18 and 59 years old are expected to fast on Good Friday, which means they are only meant to eat one full meal without meat.
The fasting rule has exceptions to pregnant women and people who are ill.
Liquids are allowed at any time but no snacks in between.
Good Friday is preceded by Easter Sunday, the celebration of Jesus’ resurrection after his crucifixion.
What else is open on Good Friday?
Since Good Friday is not a federal holiday, almost all stores and restaurants will be open for service.
Many restaurants and fast food chains, including Starbucks, McDonald’s, and Olive Garden are also open for curbside pickup, delivery, and dine-in eating.
However, dining rooms in select states remain closed or are only open to a limited capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic.
