Why good friday is not considered a 'happy day'

Christians believe that Jesus of Nazareth was crucified on a Friday, April 3, AD 33 at Calvary, also known as Golgotha, outside the walls of Jerusalem.

Christ’s followers observe this day as Good Friday, also known as Great Friday.

The day is part of the Holy Week, which culminates in Easter.

The date of Good Friday changes every year as it is dependent on Easter, which too changes annually. Good Friday falls on April 7, this year.

As per various Gospels of the Bible’s New Testament, Jesus foretold of his betrayal by Judas, his crucifixion and his rise after three days.

As per Mark 9:31, Jesus said that he will be publicly mocked, brutally abused and killed, but will rise again after three days.
