(BEDFORD) - Today is Good Friday the start of the Easter Holiday.
It commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus. There are few explanations as to why the holiday is known as "Good" Friday since it commemorates a sorrowful time in Christianity. Some scholars believe that "good" is a corruption of the word "God's" while others speculate that "good" was used to denote "holy".
Today all Bedford City offices will be closed in observance of the holiday. All Friday trash and recycle routes will be picked up on Monday, TASC buses will not be running on Friday.
