I think it might be because he died for a good cause, and so we remember his sacrifice and honor him today, rather then feel sad about what happened. That said, I really don't know much at all about religion, so I might be wrong.

Also, welcome back MaidenJapan!

Good Friday has no set date. If it were, lets say, the 15 of April, then it would be good Thursday/Saturday the next. So the real question is, what do we do when we get good Friday the 13th?

We stop being superstitious, that's what we do :P

Regarding the topic, I just found this:

That sounds like fun.
And if you can remember this far back, that happened in 2001. And 1990, or so my dad says...
(EDIT: By flipping through an online calender it looks like it's not going to happen again until 2063. Could be wrong about that though... And there were probably easier ways to check...)
So yay.


Anyway... Time to let this thread die...
