Good Friday, a Christian holiday, serves as a commemoration of the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. It is alternatively known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, and Black Friday.

For Christians, Good Friday holds profound significance as it serves as a reminder that Jesus sacrificed his life for the sins of humanity. Some Catholics observe Good Friday as a day of fasting, with variations such as a partial fast that excludes meat. Certain households maintain a subdued atmosphere, minimizing outside activities and limiting the use of television, radio, and computers. Occurring on the day before Easter Sunday, which marks the celebration of Jesus' resurrection, Good Friday is a pivotal part of the Christian Easter observance.
