Can't imagine why this day is called a Good Friday.  Surely dying on a cross can't be that good, can it?

There is a good article in Wikipedia that explains it 👍

It was quite a good Friday, today, as it goes.

it's called good Friday as it's going to be a very long weekend which means it starts today which is good plenty more excuse for having more beers 🍺🍺 well that's my take on it & I'm sticking to it 😊

Dying on a cross doesn't strike me as especially good!?!

@extreme_one no don't suppose it wasn't, maybe it's because he rose again on Easter Monday after he died to save man kind on the Friday,

You and every kid who's forced to attend RE lessons asks that question!

 

Not that I'm equating you with being a kid @extreme_one!
