We celebrate Good Friday to commemorate the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calavary. It is believed that Jesus Christ was arrested and tried and sentenced by one Pontius Pilate to be scourged and then finally crucified by the Romans. The incident finds a mention in the canonical gospels where it says that Jesus was stripped of his clothes and offered wine mixed with gall to drink before being crucified. Hence, the Friday, which falls in the Holy week of Christians, and precedes Easter is observed as a Good Friday. It may also coincide with Jewish observance of Passover.
