Hong Kong Good Friday Holiday
Good Friday is one of the two Christian holidays celebrated in Hong Kong. It comes as a surprise that the people of China and Hong Kong celebrate several public holidays throughout the year. Internationally, Easter is a celebration to remember Jesus Christ’s death on Friday, as well as, his resurrection on Sunday. Also, Good Friday is a celebration on Friday that comes before Easter Sunday. Thus, it is a commemoration of the lord’s Passion, crucifixion, and death, as mentioned in the Holy Bible. It is a day that comes after Maundy Thursday. This day is also a bank holiday in Hong Kong. The reason why it is a major public holiday in Hong Kong is that the city was officially under the control of the British Empire that follows the Christian faith.
