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.
