Millions of Orthodox Christians around the world commemorate Good Friday, also known as “Great Friday”. The atmosphere of the day is solemn and it is observed as a day of mourning to remember the events leading up to Jesus Christ's crucifixion.

Many Orthodox churches retained the Julian calendar after the Gregorian calendar was introduced in Europe in 1582. Therefore they often follow a different Easter date compared with many western churches. Easter holidays, such as Good Friday, are “moveable feasts” as these dates change according to calendar calculations.

The crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ is remembered on Good Friday.
