The Draw of Good Friday

I don’t recall everyone at work having previously taken off on Good Friday. But today, everyone was out. Everyone (hyperbole). I checked a few calendars and all listed “good Friday” as the reason to take off. I thought maybe my coworkers were more religious than I thought until I started pawing around. I got suspicious when both someone with the last name “Suberamanian” and “Steinberg” had taken off with reason of “Good Friday”. Either people or lying or the draw of the good word is far greater than I imagined.
