"'Today is Good Friday'"

Unlike many of the other tales in The Mabinogion, where the emphasis is on ancient Celtic deities, the religious background to ‘Peredur son of Efrog’ is Christian.

In the Christian calendar, Good Friday is part of Holy Week which culminates in Easter Sunday, the day on which Christians celebrate the resurrection of the crucified Jesus.
