New Delhi: Good Friday is observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. 


The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover.  

It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the latter properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
