Easter in Portugal
On Good Friday, they eat fish, normally Cod, prepared in one of the many, many different ways. On Easter sunday, they go to Mass and then have a meal of Lamb. It is a big family day with many families getting together for the meal.
Many towns through the country have religious processions, which are quite interesting to see.
There are several spots which are popular to visit. The most famous being Braga which is known for its amount of churches and religious connections as the Archbishop of Portugal is based there.
So wishing all a Happy Easter, wherever you are, however you celebrate.
