Christians across the globe mark Good Friday

72

 Good Friday is on 2nd April. Good Friday, observed before Easter, is the day when Christians commemorate Jesus Christ’s crucifixion.

Good Friday is observed by Christians as a day of penance, grief, and fasting.

Good Friday also marks the end of the 40-day period of fasting for Christians, called Lent.

This year, Lent is on Saturday, April 3, the day before Easter Sunday.

The entire holy week for Christians started with Palm Sunday (29th March) and will end on Easter Monday on 5th April.

Easter Monday is also called ‘Bright Monday’ or the ‘Renewal Monday’.
