That explains a lot, but I still don't understand why celebrate someone's death by calling it "Good" Friday. Also, what does a giant bunny leaving eggs where kids can find them have to do with the resurrection?

This is why I'm not religious. Too many loopholes and alot of it falls back in on itself. Not to mention the religious zealots you get giving out flyers and shouting at you to "see the light". Eh....I'll stop ranting now.

You're a very ignorant person, aren't you? I mean, not to be rude, but how do you not know about the meaning of Easter in a predominately Christian nation? Didn't your parents ever bring you to church? Honestly...Jesus died for our sins, that's all you need to know. So in a show of gratefulness to such an awe inspiring act, most people celebrate Easter and go to Church. I'm not sure what everyone else like jews and muslims and the non-religious do but I'm sure they use it as an excuse to eat and party like most holidays (regardless of religious content), as many people on this site can tell you.

Nah, my dad's side is Catholic and my mom's side is baptist, but I'm an agnostic atheist and my mom has some kind of new age spirituality thing. My aunt, though, (my dad's brother's wife) is a devout Jew and my uncle converted for her.

No, they don't, but they believe he was a prophet, I think. Passover is all about the Hebrew slaves escaping Egypt and wandering through the desert with Moses. You know, the plagues, the parting of the Red Sea, etc.

Pretty much going with this, I don't believe in Holidays/Birthdays to begin with. Just seems like organized gibberish to me.

I'm not religious, so I don't particularly care all that much about Good Friday and Easter. I do always like the long, free weekend (Friday to Monday) that accompanies these holidays though.

However, this year it just so happens that I didn't have any work or lectures scheduled on those days anyway, so they're just like plain ordinary days to me.

The day we celebrate Jesus getting beat the fuck up
Then, if you are supposed to worship him, why do you celebrate him getting nailed to two pieces of wood? Shouldn't it be called Bad Friday or something?

I thought he resurrected three days after his crucifixion, so wouldn't that make Thursday the day he was crucified? I thought on Friday Jesus ascended to heaven (or something). Not fully sure though. Again, I'm not religious.
