Today many of you are not working. Why?

You are not working because you are on a vacation you took, you don't have a job or because your job and employer gave you the day off because they recognize Good Friday. This You Tube video explains it quickly and tastefully in 42 seconds.

This day is a religious Christian holiday, and you can learn all about it here in text as well regardless of your religion or beliefs. I always feel whether we celebrate a day or not, it is best to be educated so we can if nothing else speak intelligently about it if it ever comes up in conversation. For the record, I'm Methodist and will be honoring Good Friday for what it is.

Regardless, enjoy your day off and enjoy your families and have a blessed Easter from my family to yours.
