Why call it "GOOD Friday" when it is the day Jesus died on the Cross?

Don't you find it interesting that the dark and bleak event commemorating a day of suffering and death of Jesus Christ is called Good Friday?

Good Friday : Vendredi Saint in Haiti

I was reading this article, it says in Germany the day is called Karfreitag, or "Sorrowful Friday."

At least in Haiti, we call it "Vendredi Saint" and not "Bon Vendredi"... LOL...

I mean it was a pretty dark day for Jesus. The article says: In the same way, Good Friday is "good" because as terrible as that day was, it had to happen for us to receive the joy of Easter.

What do you think about it? Are you comfortable with the day being called Good Friday?

I personally believe it could have been named differently, but I find that « Good Friday « fits well because on that day, as Jesus getting tortured, our sinful-baskets were getting lighter and lighter and there our freedom starts.

Deliberations we hoped for came about! All our mess, shame, selfishness, lying habit, stealing habit, hatred, sexual immorality, and much more got crucified into one body that's willing to take it all on for us (he volunteered).

So we no longer have to sacrifice blood in order to be forgiven or accepted when something went wrong from our part. Plus, on that Friday, many feel like they're truly experienced the Father's love. So for many, it's a Good Friday because on that day all of their debts were canceled
