Isn't every Friday a good Friday?

During class we were going through planners and writing down upcoming events. We flipped to the week before April vacation, and this conversation happened:

Kid: Why does it say "Good Friday" in my planner? Isn't every Friday a good Friday? What makes this one gooder? (sidenote: clearly I'm not doing a good enough job teaching English)

Me: It's a Catholic holiday, the Friday before Easter (sidenote: I know it's not just Catholics who celebrate it, that's just what came out in this conversation)

Kid: But I'm a Catholic, and I don't celebrate any particular Fridays.

Me: When was the last time you went to church?

Kid: I think when I was baptized.

Me: That could be why you don't know about it.

And then another kid asked if we could study Maine for our class country project.
