Good Friday

I always wondered why the day Jesus was crucified is called “Good” Friday. Being nailed to a cross could hardly be described as “good”. Perhaps it should be called “Bad” Friday, or “This Day Really Stinks” Friday. I finally got around to looking it up and it seems that the “good” is an obsolete definition of the word which means holy or pious. That makes a whole lot more sense.
