good friday

Esok adalah public holiday di sarawak sempena perayaan good friday. Yay! 

Good friday tu ape ek?
" Good Friday (from the senses pious, holy of the word "good"), is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Black Friday, Holy Friday, Great Friday, or Easter Friday,though the latter normally refers to the Friday in Easter week. "

Hari good friday ni dihormati di Sabah dan Sarawak dengan menjadikannya sebagai cuti umum. Maybe sebab jumlah penganut agama Kristian di Sabah Sarawak ni adalah lebih ramai berbanding dengan Semenanjung kot. So minggu ni i cotti tiga hari!. Good friday+weekend! Have a great wiken uolls =)

The public holiday in Sabah and Sarawak on Good Friday is not because of the states' demographics per se. In the 1975 or 1976, I can't remember when, the Federal Government tried to abolish Good Friday as a public holiday. These two states opposed the move.
By right, it should be the same as a public holiday all over Malaysia.
