Black Friday

Do you ever practice the silence when Black Friday comes? What does it mean? As a Filipino and as I have observed in our culture we have so many ways to observe Black Friday. For us, we make sure that we pay attention and respect this day. For if you are a Catholic, this is the day that Jesus Christ crucified on the Cross. The day He saves us all in our sins.

I missed how we observe this Holy Week in the Philippines. I missed to be with my Family during this time. Enjoy the time with them and the food that is only allowed for this day.

I missed the culture that I used to know and practice. It might be funny for another culture, however I do love the Filipino culture no matter what.

Let us all observe the Black Friday in silence.

  4. I do not know too much about Black Friday since I am not Catholic or Christian. Since you are now here in the USA you are free to celebrate however you wish!

  6. I am Catholic but typically refer to it as Good Friday (the Friday before Easter). What foods do you typically celebrate with? I have a hard time finding meatless dishes that my entire family likes to enjoy on Lenten Fridays.

  7. I had never heard of this until now. You should be able to celebrate however you would like but I completely understand not having family around to celebrate with and all the traditions that go with it. Sorry you are so far from home.

  11. Black Friday is when we reflect, pray, commemorate the sacrifice that Jesus Christ did for us.
