Good Friday, observed by Christians around the world, commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and is a solemn day of reflection and reverence. Despite the somber nature of the events it commemorates, the term “Good Friday” may seem paradoxical to some.

The word “Good-Friday” is said to have originated from an older English expression, “God’s Friday,” which developed over time into its modern form. While the events of Good Friday—Jesus’ betrayal, trial, and crucifixion—are unquestionably horrific, Catholics believe they are necessary for humanity’s redemption and salvation.

What Date Is Good Friday?

 Good Friday will be observed on March 29th, and Holy Saturday on March 30th. While Easter Sunday in 2024 falls on March 31st.

The date of Easter varies each year because it’s based on a combination of the lunar cycle and the solar calendar. Easter Sunday is always the first Sunday after the first full moon following the March equinox. This ensures that Easter always falls between March 22nd and April 25th.
