    I heard a preacher talk about this topic. If Good Friday was the day Christ was crucified and Sunday was the day he arose, then how is it that Christ was in the tomb for 3 days and 3 nights? Just wondered if anyone knows the answer.

    Personally I do not think it important which day we celebrate Easter. For me the topic is trivial but interesting.

    He wasn't crucified on Friday. The passages talk about more than one holy day; He was crucified on Wednesday.

    I wonder if Odin also crucified himself on Wednesday.

    Sorry, I typed before I thought. He was arrested on Wednesday, not crucified until the next day.

    His body was then in the tomb Thursday night, Friday night and Saturday night, and was rasied the dead on Sunday morning.

    He does a good job of outlining and tracing the sundry issues for each of the days in theory.

    Interesting. Here is a sight that seems to think that Christ was raised on Saturday.

    Personally it matters little to me which day it was. What is certain, however, is that the current perception is wrong as to when these events unfolded.

    While some traditions are right to hang onto, a lot of them end up yielding thoughts and actions initially unintended.

    Easter is derived from the vernal equiniox and should be on that day. It is day of ancient fertility and world renewal ceremonies. Let's all work to restore it before it is too late.

    It's never too late, but Easter/Ostara has been and gone for this year.

    It was an inside jab at dags. No slight intended, to be sure.
