"Black Saturday"

Black Saturday is the day after Good Friday. It is the day before Easter and the last day of Holy Week, in which Christians prepare for Easter. This day commemorates the day that Jesus Christ's body lay in the tomb.
.
In the New Testament, Jesus' disciples were mourning... but was mixed with excitement... with expecant heart that Jesus will rise from the death as He had claimed. It was also said that those people who were part of the mob that demanded Jesus' crucifixion was startled and guilty. They started to ask themselves, "What if Jesus was really the King of Kings?" It was described as the gloomiest days for the followers of Jesus Christ. The Bible says that on that day, Jesus descended down into hell to break the gates of Hades. Jesus was victorious with His mission here on earth. The grave denied Him. Death got no hold of HIM!
