    I must "confess", I am not catholic but fall, more into the agnostic zone.

    I am also Roman Catholic, better half Pentecostal we have both always eaten fish on Good Friday. Not a big difference between the two religions really.

    Nobody religious in our house. No disrespect intended to people who are, just weird to not even notice until I saw something just now!

    It really doesn't matter so long as we are respectful of those who have religion and there are different religions, many guite different than the Roman Catholic, but we have to be respectful of everyones beliefs, even if you don't believe in any religion.

    Mind you I haven't been inside a church since my niece was baptized and I was the godfather, and a sisters funeral back in 2013, but I do say my nightly prayers every night.

    It's Långfredag (Long Friday) here, and I just happen to have fish for dinner. It was the longest day of the year because there was nothing to do. There was only one cinema open and they showed Konungarnas konung (King of kings).

    Does anyone know what time it is?

    Does anyone even care?

    Now that we have Covid, we are in a perpetual states of indifference and apathy just sitting around waiting for our political leaders to tell us it's safe to breath once again and resume our lives.

    And to think, many thought their lives were already pathetic before Covid.

    LOL.

    That was in the old days, when religion mattered here. Now everything is closed for other reasons.

    I think it was fish every Friday when I was at school although it wasn't a religious school. Maybe that was religious. Maybe it was cheaper! I had an uncle who worked on the fish docks in Hull. He said they always had to choose the worst fish to sell cheap to schools and hospitals! On the other hand my aunt had a chip shop in Hull which was in a different league!
