(to preface: I am not religious)
In the context of what went down on Good Friday (the arrest and torture and eventual crucifixion of Jesus), I think the Finnish name of the day is better. It translates as ‘Long Friday’.
Religious symbolism aside, I have never understood why anyone would call tomorrow a ‘good friday’. Even if you take into account the fact that stuff from the bible is often mistranslated or misinterpreted, I still prefer the Finnish name. I feel that a day commemorating the death of a historically significant person should, even now, reflect the mood of the day.
(Wikipedia tells me that the etymology of the name is in question - it could be ‘good’ as in holy, or a corruption from ‘God Friday’)
