Good Friday is not an officially designated federal holiday, but it is observed by institutions across the country as an important Christian holiday that commemorates the crucifixion and suffering of Jesus Christ prior to his resurrection. Good Friday always falls on the Friday before Easter Sunday. 

Good Friday is one of the oldest-observed Christian holidays, stretching back to approximately 100 A.D. as a day of fasting. It became a full-fledged commemoration of Jesus’ crucifixion in the 400s.
