The Religious Holy Days

Good Friday

Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. It 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, and Black Friday. Members of many Christian denominations, including the Anglican, Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, Oriental Orthodox and Reformed traditions, observe Good Friday with fasting and church services. The date of Good Friday varies from one year to the next on both the Gregorian and Julian calendars. Eastern and Western Christianity disagree over the computation of the date of Easter and therefore of Good Friday. Good Friday is a widely instituted legal holiday around the world, including in most Western countries and 12 U.S. states. Some countries, such as Germany, have laws prohibiting certain acts, such as dancing and horse racing, that are seen as profaning the solemn nature of the day.

Passover Begins at Sundown

Happy Passover to those who celebrate from my family to yours. I'll be with family in NJ. Do you remember back to childhood when you celebrated the holidays? In those years I spent Passover in Great Neck, Long Island with family. Times and Locations may change but traditions often stay the same. There is something about family and soul groups that make it real.

Ellie at the 2017 auto show - Javits Center in NYC. I have always been into cars old and new as are my daughters. I once helped a friend restore an old Pontiac GTO.
