Traditionally, Good Friday occurs between March 20 and April 23 on the Friday before Easter, and commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus.
Why "Good Friday"? No one knows for sure. However, church scholars sometimes point to the very same Eastern Orthodox observance known as Great Friday. Others believe that "good" eventually became a corruption of God, or an old English word meaning "holy."
Today, Christian churches traditionally hold services on Good Friday from noon until 3:00 p.m. to symbolize Jesus' last hours on the cross. In Catholic churches especially this includes The Stations of the Cross, a reenactment of the procession to Mount Calvary where Jesus was crucified.
I personally love it for a simple reason. Even after my 2 months of arrogant sick leave, my company has kindly granted me the freedom of availing a floating holiday. So, what am i doing today ??
