 Why we
eat fish on
John Dory on reasons for the Easter tradition
Tradition says that fish is the meal of of Christ’s death as a reminder of this and so
as to ‘unite their sufferings'.
So why is it okay for us to eat fish and not meat? Meat was seen as something eaten during feasts, but fish was seen as an ‘everyday thing’, especially as most people were fishermen. Times have changed considerably since then with many people viewing fish as the more luxury item today. The fish tradition is as much a part of Easter as chocolate eggs and the Easter bunny, only this tradition goes back much further.
choice on Good Friday although many
won't know the reason for this.
It’s a tradition that stems back to Roman Catholic customs of old to not eat the flesh of warm-blooded animals on Fridays, to acknowledge and do penance for the death of Jesus.
Good Friday marks the day Jesus Christ was crucified. According to Christianity, Jesus sacrificed his flesh on Good Friday, when he was executed and died for our sins. For this reason, the Church encourages followers to abstain from meaty flesh on the anniversary
