Two days prior to Easter Sunday, during Holy Week, there is an observance of Good Friday. It falls on March 29 of this year.

Good Friday’s significance: For Christians, Good Friday represents Jesus Christ’s final atonement for the sins of humanity.

Religious services are attended by large crowds, and churches observe particular rites to remember Jesus’ suffering. Muffled bells are a symbol of mourning.

While charity and deeds of compassion are urged to assist those in need, certain localities commemorate the Passion of Christ through processions and reenactments.
