Good Friday is seen as a day of mourning, representing the day that Christ was placed upon the cross. Flags are hung at half mast, church bells ring, and many people choose to fast the entire day. A church service is held in the evening, and at this service an epitaph is decorated with flowers. The epitaph is eventually carried out of the church and through the streets, leading a candlelight procession. When the procession comes to an end, the epitaph is brought back into the church to represent Christ being laid to rest. This procession is also known as circumambulation.
