Happy Easter Sunday

When is Good Friday?

This year, Good Friday falls YESTERDAY, Friday, March 30. In different traditions, the date is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday or Easter Friday. It marks the start of the Easter long weekend, which includes Easter Monday on April 2, 2018. The date changes every year as Easter Sunday must always fall on the next full moon after Spring Equinox.

Why do we celebrate Good Friday?

Good Friday is commemorated because the date marks the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. Accounts of the Gospel state that the son of God was put to death after he was betrayed by Judas and sentenced to death. The date falls during Holy Week on the Friday before Easter Sunday and sometimes coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Experts believe the event has been coined “Good Friday” because the word “good” means pious or holy.

Millions of Christians across the globe are set to celebrate Easter on April 1 TOMORROW.
