It's Good Friday!
Good Friday is the Friday before Easter, which is calculated differently in Eastern Christianity and Western Christianity (see Computus for details). Easter falls on the first Sunday following the Paschal Full Moon, the full moon on or after 21 March, taken to be the date of the vernal equinox. The Western calculation uses the Gregorian calendar, while the Eastern calculation uses the Julian calendar, whose 21 March now corresponds to the Gregorian calendar's 3 April. The calculations for identifying the date of the full moon also differ.
Most of the countries would declare as the holiday for Good Friday. But Good Friday is not the holiday for my country. This year, Good Friday is celebrating with the Earth Day on the same day. Thus I would like to wish you all to have a Happy Earth Day and Good Friday!!!
