Why is Good Friday Celebrated?
Good Friday is the remembrance of the day that Jesus Christ died to wipe clean the sins of man, at the hands of the Jews at Golgotha. He was killed for claiming to be the son of the God, when previous charges were found to be without merit and no basis for sentencing. This day is a religious observance followed by many Christians (followers of Christ) around the world although it has different names in different countries. English and Dutch speaking countries call it “good” Friday, with it otherwise being mostly called Holy Friday. Other variations include High, or Great Friday, the Day of Christ’s suffering and Long Friday.
