Best answer:

Holy Week is the time of the year in which the passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is remembered. During this period, many Christians try to honor the son of God for their passage through this world and follow the traditions that have been maintained for a long time.

Being considered Good Friday as a representative date for Christianity because the crucifixion and death of Jesus of Nazareth is remembered, the Catholic Church commands its faithful not to eat red meat because it represents the body of the crucified Christ, as well as being a form of keep fasting and abstinence as penance.

Another reason to avoid this day is because it is associated with celebrations and banquets, and Good Friday is not a date to celebrate, but to commemorate the sacrifice of Jesus.
