Good Friday in the Philippines is always the Friday before Easter Sunday. This day commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
Many Filipinos will limit listening to music, eating meat, drinking alcohol on this day. Christian and Catholic people will attend church and mass and spend some of the day in prayer. The day is a national holiday with government and most businesses closed.
Hundreds of years ago the Spanish came to the Philippines and brought their Christian religion. Over time the Filipino population gave up its pagan beliefs and took on Christian beliefs.
