Have A Thoughtful ‘Good Friday’ 2019; It Is Not A Day For Rejoicing.

Easter, though Americans do not appreciate it, is an unique ‘yin-and-yangholiday — the only one of its kind in Christianity.

You have ‘Good Friday’ and ‘Easter Sunday’. In the U.S. ‘Good Friday’ isn’t even a Federal holiday — though, in reality, one could argue that in terms of Christianity is a very important Holy Day.

Though a bona fide holiday, it would be wrong to consider it a day to be happy. So, the greeting: ‘Have a Happy Good Friday‘ is wrong, even offensive. Good Friday is a day for contemplation. Easter Sunday is the day to be Merry.

So, I will just wish you a ‘Thoughtful Good Friday 2019’ and point out that it is indeed a holiday in the Guruge household — since I do not believe that one can ever have too many holidays.
