Does anyone participate in religious holidays/practices because it's more of a family tradition, rather than an actual religious tradition?

My mum is Christian, my dad & I are atheist. My dad & I always refrain from eating meat on Good Friday because it's my mums 'thing'. Neither of us know why you don't eat meat on Good Friday, we just do it because my mum doesn't.

EDIT: Apart from holidays like Christmas & Easter, as for a lot of people they're no longer about religion, but family & giving & Santa & The Easter Bunny etc.
