Trying to figure out the proper salutation for Good Friday.  
I've had a couple of people wish me "Happy Good Friday" today. I'm trying to appreciate the sentiment here (it is kind of these people to recognize my religious affiliation) but...err...the thing is....'happy?' 'Happy Crucifixion?' 'Happy celebration of a guy being tortured and dying on a cross?'

The 'Happy' is rather awkward, don't you think?

Of course, when I try to think of a substitution my mind draws a complete blank.
'Have a sad Good Friday?'...No, I don't think that's it.
Blessed Good Friday?...well that seems plausible.

But yeah, what are you supposed to say?
'Happy Good Friday' just doesn't sound correct.

Good Friday alone sounds good to me. As in, you see someone and say, Good Friday! Or when leaving, See you tomorrow, Good Friday!.

Happy Jesus-on-a-stick day?

The fact that I laughed at that and immediately tried to think of a way to work Jesus-kebab into a daily sentence is probably a strong indicator that the place I'm heading after death is a lot toastier than I'd like.

I dunno. I kind of have to believe that God has a sense of humor.

Like that whole thing with Abraham:
God: Kill your son.
Abe: What!? Seriously?
God: Yeah, kill him. I, like, command it and stuff.
Abe: Um, is that a good idea?
God: Kill your son.
Abe: ....
God: Kill your son.
Abe: :(
God: Kill him!
Abe: .... Ok, I-I'm doing it.
God: Lol, psych!
