Good Friday, also known as Holy Friday, Black Friday, Great Friday, is celebrated in the Christian tradition in memory of Jesus’ crucifixion and death on Golgotha outside Jerusalem. On Good Friday is celebrated often crossroads devotion to the memory of Jesus’ suffering. The church service is often located at three o’clock in the afternoon when it was at that time Jesus died. In Sweden, the Good Friday is a public holiday, that means all people is available that day. In the past, all the shops and restaurants was closed on Good Friday and until 1969 was forbidden to dance, to amuse themselves in public or performing unnecessary tasks in this day since Good Friday was the big day of mourning.
