Significance Of Good Friday by S. Vaikundarajan

Good Friday
Good Friday is not considered as a day of celebration rather it is a day to mourn Jesus Christ’s death. Christ was crucified on this day. On Good Friday, Christians across the world offer prayers and read out Good Friday sermons in the churches today. Around the world, Good Friday is also known by other names like Easter Friday, Great Friday, etc.

Good Friday falls in the Holy Week on the Friday before the Easter Sunday. People remembering and mourn the death of Christ and the agony and pain he went though before he died. At the churches, the candles are put out and statues are covered in black to express grief.

In India, offices, schools, and remain closed on the occasion of this religious holiday. Christians mark the significance of the day by sending Good Friday wishes to their friends and dear ones. Sending messages has become a great way to send wishes to your friends and family on this day.

Good Friday is declared as a holiday in parts of the world where Christians have a wide presence. It is commemorated in different ways across the world but its significance remains the same. 

I, S. Vaikundarajan wish all country men a Happy Good Friday.
