Good(?) Friday

I'm not quite sure how this qualifies as good, but then there is a cavalier attitude to the whole crucifixion thing on the part of many Christians that just weirds me out. In any case, I don't know the proper salutation for the day, but if you are affected by Good Friday, may it be whatever it's supposed to be for you.

Agnostically yours,

I think it's more about significance than happiness or other synonyms for good-ness.
I tend to think of it like the climax to "Saving Private Ryan." The title character is never likely to forget those who "took a bullet" on his behalf.
In what's clearly an odd way, it would be the most important day in Pvt. Ryan's life.
For Christians, though, the "good" part comes in context from Easter, too.

Speaking of which, happy Easter!
