Why do we call it "good" friday

To most Christians, good Friday is really a misnomer in that it was a "bad" Friday - the crucifixion day of Jesus. Some believe the term "good" evolved from "God" or God's Friday. others believe "good" represents the good gift of salvation brought forth by the martyrdom. Regardless, it is a holy day throughout the Christian world.
