Check out these different ideas for how you can
spend your day on Friday, April 19.
 Good Friday is a Christian holiday celebrated on
the Friday before Easter Sunday. This year, Good
Friday falls on April 19 and commemorates the cruci-
fixion of Jesus Christ. This day traditionally includes
fasting and penance.
How will you spend Good Friday this year? Below is
a list of ideas you can incorporate into your day:
• Visit your local church.
• Attend the Stations of the Cross.
• Go to, participate in or organize a Passion play.
• Fast or eat lightly throughout the day.
• Stop to pray at 3 p.m. –
this is believed to be the
time Jesus died on the
cross.
