Good Friday

30 Mar 2018  Fri

Good Friday, which marks the day when Jesus Christ was crucified in Calvary, falls on the Friday right before Easter. Across the world, Christians observe this solemn day with humility and reverence by remembering the passion and sacrifice of Christ.

Good Friday celebrations are marked by a sombre, sorrowful tone. People spend the day fasting, meditating and remembering Christ through their prayers. Churches hold services but bells are not rung, and churchgoers and priests wear black clothes. The altar and pulpit of the church are left bare, and candles are not lit on this day.

Here is an image of the stamps that shows scenes on the crucifixion of Jesus. The stamp on the left was released by Hungary while the other one came from Serbia and Montenegro. Both stamps were issued in 2002.
