Lebanon’s Good Friday receives recognition
Due to the recent debate of removing Lebanon’s most important religious holidays (yes, more so than Christmas to Christians), Lebanon still has the privilege of blatantly honoring Good Friday as a Lebanese National Holiday.
A very rare commodity for the Middle East, founder of the three main monotheistic religions.
For our Greek Orthodox, Good Friday tends to be usually a few weeks after the Catholic/Maronite Easter, though, I have to admit, its always gloomy on the Orthodoxes Good Friday, as the Bible described that day 2008 year ago in Lebanon.
For those living abroad – A treat to our roots.
