Good Friday and Easter Sunday are two major events in the Catholic calendar the world over. Preceded by forty days of lent, where Christians give up a vice of their choosing as repentance for sins committed. Good Friday usually begins with a grand mid-night mass in almost every Church in the state of Goa. This is followed the very next day by ‘the Stations of the Cross’, where various village congregations re-enact Jesus Christ’s journey to Golgotha where he was nailed to death on the cross. It is this day that hot-cross buns are consumed to break the 40-day long fast, once the Stations of the Cross are concluded.
Two days on and we’re met by Easter Sunday, which is a day for Christians to rejoice as Jesus Christ is said to have risen from the dead to look over them. Whatever be Easter and Good Friday’s religious connotations, it is the festive spirit that swoops the state without any religious bias.
