Christian believers observe Good Friday as a day of remembrance for Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and death at Calvary. When it falls on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, it is observed on the Friday before Easter Sunday. (around March 21).
For Christians, who consider that Jesus’ death on the cross was necessary to deliver humanity from sin, Good Friday is a day of solemn reflection and sadness. On this day, a lot of Christians observe fasting and abstinence, attend church services, and take part in processions. It is also a public holiday in other nations.
The expression “God’s Friday,” which over time evolved into “Good Friday,” is thought to have been the source of the name “Good Friday.”
