Good Friday falls on 14 April 2006.Good Friday is the Friday before Easter Sunday. On this day, Christians remember the day when Jesus was crucified on a cross.
The name may be derived from 'God's Friday' in the same way that good-bye is derived from 'God be with ye'.
Jesus was arrested and was tried, in a mock trial. He was handed over to the Roman soldiers to be beaten and flogged with whips. A crown of long, sharp thorns was thrust upon his head.

- The Sixth Hour of the day - darkness covered the land ( 12:00 noon ).
- The ninth hour of the day - the darkness left, and the Lord died
