What is More Important: Good Friday or Easter Sunday?

It was doing the Jewish Purim one day apart from Good Friday post, yesterday, that got me thinking. With that post and the one I did last year about Passover being on the same weekend I used Good Friday as the key date (though I included Easter Sunday too).

Given my interest in religious history I can argue on either side of this. Yes, I know, understand and appreciate the basics. Crucifixion vs. Resurrection. The Passion, the suffering and redemption of sin vs. hope, eternal life (and the true basis of what makes Christianity, Christianity).

That Good Friday is not a Federal Holiday in the very Christian (60%++) U.S. always amazes me. Growing up in very Buddhist Ceylon we had BOTH Good Friday and Easter Monday off — thanks to the British/European influence.

I am glad that this question gets debated. Do YOU have an opinion or preference?
