To a lot of people, Good Friday is the day that you get off from school or work and get to enjoy before Easter comes a few days later. Actually, Good Friday is a day that is mainly celebrated by the Christian faith and, for some, is a day of fasting and a punishment for sin. It represents the day that the crucifixion of Jesus began. Due to the date of Easter changing each year, the date of Good Friday changes as well. Good Friday will always be the Friday before Easter. Good Friday can very easily be confused with Black Friday, the day that we all go crazy to get good deals at our favorite stores before Christmas. Although we don’t get good deals on Good Friday, it is still meaningful to many people who practice Christianity.
