IN CASE YOU DO NOT KNOW

Good Friday, also known as Holy Friday, Black Friday, Great Friday, is a holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, his death at Calvary,and his resurrection from the grave. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday and often coincides with the Jewish observance of Passover.

Passover is a Jewish and Samaritan holy day and festival commemorating the biblical event of Hebrews' escape from enslavement in Egypt.

Passover is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays (Yom Tov), and is commemorated by many affiliated and nonaffiliated Jews alike as a time to contemplate the endurance of the Jewish people throughout history.

Blessings to all this Easter and Passover season.

  1. My best friend growing up was Jewish (I was raised Anglican) and I have wonderful memories of the seders. I learned so much of the culture and I absolutely adore matzah and still have to get some each Easter.

    Have a beautiful Easter, Annie.

  4. Thanks for the reminder, sometimes we need to stop and breathe for a minute and remember that it's not just a 50% off shopping day, but something way more important.
