Good Friday is a holy day celebrated by Christians on the Friday before Easter. It commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus at the Calvary, a voluntary and vicarious act and one by which, along with resurrection, death itself was defeated. According to tradition and some historic facts, this happened in the year 33.
In 1998, death was once again defeated. A major political development in the Northern Ireland peace process took place, when, in Belfast, the British and Irish governments signed and most Northern Ireland political parties endorsed the Good Friday Agreement. Amongst many other things, the agreement established the commitment by all parties to exclusively peaceful and democratic means. Jesus didn't die in vain!
