It has often been observed that people, most importantly Christians, prefer to wear the color ‘black,’ on occasions like these. Let’s know why is that; why the color black is worn on Good Friday.
Why Do Christians Celebrate Good Friday?
Simply defined, Christians observe the commemoration of Jesus' crucifixion on Good Friday. According to the Bible, on this day, the Jewish religious authorities took Jesus before the Romans for judgement after condemning him the previous evening for asserting that he was the son of God and ruler of the Jews. Pontius Pilate forwarded him to Herod and then back to Pilate, who ultimately executed Jesus by crucifixion—at the time, the most severe form of punishment for crime. After being beaten, Jesus was had to drag a large wooden cross through a mob of onlookers before being nailed on the cross by his wrists and feet, where he would hang until his death later that day.
Significance of Black Color on Good Friday
Good Friday is observed as a day of fasting and meat abstinence in the Roman Catholic tradition, however fasting regulations differ from region to region of the Church. In 2023, the festival of Good Friday will be celebrated on April 7th, a Friday. Easter will fall on April 9th, a Sunday.
On Good Friday, people are accustomed to donning black attire, particularly mourning attire, in various groups, particularly traditional Catholic communities.
The choice of clothing is predicated on treating the holy day, which is focused on the passing of Jesus, as a solemn event akin to a funeral. The most solemn day of the year is Good Friday, also known as "Great Friday" or "Holy Friday."
