Orthodox Good Friday in Serbia commemorates the events leading up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. The eastern church uses the Julian calendar for many of its holidays and this is why Good Friday in Serbia is different from Good Friday in the Western Church nations.

People can attend a special church service and pray.

History

The eastern Christian Church bases many of its holidays off the Julian calendar which puts Good Friday in the eastern church different from the western church using the Gregorian calendar.
