A holy day that is more interesting to math educators than any other Christian festivals like Christmas (Dec. 25) and All Saints' Day (Nov. 1), because its date keeps changing every year.
Good Friday may be used as a calendrical puzzle for recreational math students to figure out when it'll fall in a particular year—for example, they'd work out a formula that gives us the date straightaway.

A day that commemorates the assassination of some make believe Jew named Jesus. According to Christian Mythology, that Jew will later rise from the dead, which makes Jesus a zombie.

The worship of Jesus "the zombie" no doubt holds society back as a whole.
"This sure is a good Friday now that Jesus is dead."

"We better not eat meat or else Jesus will come back as a zombie and drag us kicking and screaming to the fiery depths of hell."

"Fuck that. I'm eating a steak."
