Happy... Good Friday..

I've been wondering since I saw it on my Australian calendar, why do you call it Good Friday? Here we call it Långfredagen, which means The Long Friday.

Good Friday eh?

Went out to the local club and had some good ol' drunk times.. that was until we tried to catch the courtesy bus back home and we were kicked off due to one mate wanting to punch up with another passenger.

All in all was a fun night.


Hope everyone had a good one.

Good Friday is the day that the Church keeps the anniversary of the crucification of Christ. I'm not sure when people began worshiping on that day in particular.

Quote:
From the earliest times the Christians kept every Friday as a feast day; and the obvious reasons for those usages explain why Easter is the Sunday par excellence, and why the Friday which marks the anniversary of Christ's death came to be called the Great or the Holy or the Good Friday. The origin of the term Good is not clear. Some say it is from "God's Friday" (Gottes Freitag); others maintain that it is from the German Gute Freitag, and not specially English. Sometimes, too, the day was called Long Friday by the Anglo-Saxons; so today in Denmark.

I never understood why they called it Good Friday. I mean, it's the day they killed Jesus, right? Everybody was all sad and stuff. Bad Friday seems more appropriate.

Well, Dr. Google doesn't really come up with a definitive answer why it is called Good Friday (most of the other days in Holy Week are simply called Holy: Holy Thursday, etc.)

On guy suggested it might be a corruption of God (ie God's Friday) or from the meaning of good which is closer to 'holy'.

Anther common suggestion, which I prefer, is that even though it is a very dark day (the day Jesus is betrayed and crucified), he dies to set us free. So, the day actually represents God sacrificing himself, his son, for his people. So, it is also a good day.

Yes! We call it Long Friday in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway.. because it was a long day for Christ.. I think.
