Good Friday is a Christian holiday that falls on the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day, Christians observe the passion (or suffering) and death of Jesus Christ on the cross.

Many Christians spend this day in fasting, prayer, repentance, and meditation on the agony and suffering that Christ endured while dying on the cross.

Many government institutions, schools, and other businesses are closed on Good Friday to observe this holiday.
