Good Friday is the day where our Lord died for us on the cross.  It is 2 days before Easter Sunday.

Yes. It's the Friday prior to Easter. 

So it's called 'Good Friday' in English huh?  What's good about the death of Jesus? :smileyvery-happy:  /jk

In older text Holy and Good were interchangeable :smileywink:.    I think that is the origin of it being called "Good".  I know it doesn't make sense to call it good, does it? :smileytongue:

It is called "Sorrowful Friday" in German!

 

But I would say "Good" is perfectly valid as well. The crucial blow to Jesus of Nazareth was the culmination of the law and allows God to be both "just and the justifier" (as the perfect sacrifice was made in place of mankind's sin and allows us to be free from it). I would say it fits since it is the triumph over sin.

 

Many traditional rituals mark the sadness of this sinless man taking the burden of all humanity, though. It is by no means "Happy Friday," but the act was definitely Good.
