Ever wondered why is it called Good Friday? I checked wiki for answer (wiki.answers.com).
Good Friday is the day commemorating Jesus Christ's death on the Cross. The exact origins of the name are uncertain; some argue it stems from the use of "Good" as an adjective applied to the day, which is an Old English synonym for "holy." Others argue it is a corruption of the word "God," in the same way that "Good Bye" comes from the phrase "God be with ye."
Christians believe the day is "good" because the message of Easter is of Christ's victory over sin, death, and the devil.
However, the term "Good Friday" is only used by Western Christians, and not by Eastern Orthodox Christians. The Orthodox refer to this sacred day as "Great and Holy Friday."
Thank you Lord for the Cross.
