    I know why it's "Palm Sunday".

    But where did they get "Good Friday" and "Easter"?

    Should it not be "Crucifixion day" and "Resurrection Sunday"? Where do you get a word like "Easter"? And what was good about THAT friday?

    Ok, that helped.

    I also read once that "Good Friday" started out (perhaps) as "God Friday" or "God's Friday"...

    I remembered that when reading one of your links.

    Do you know the "formula" for Easter? I picked it up while watching a James Burke series "The Day the Universe Changed".

    Easter falls on the first sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox.
