Its Holy Week again, when people are grumpier and irritable but traditions keep them closer. Holy week is a special occasion for us. This long vacation gives us a time to reflect and do things we dont usually do during ordinary days. Now is the time to detoxify yourself, both body and soul.
Some completely dont eat, some just forgo meat and only eat fruits and vegetables. This is a fun time for those on a diet because everyone else is on a diet with you. Don’t chow down vegetables too much; you might choke, you know.
Its like joining in a fun run but 90% slower. No matter whos first, everyone always ends up in church.
Its the time of year when superstitions are remembered again. Dont go outside cause evil will befall you, Dont cut yourself as it may not heal, and many others used to scare us when we were kids. Darn old people and their scare tactics!
Inevitable for those who just stay at home this Holy Week. Boring shows on TV makes you just throw away your sanity but thank God theres internet.
After enduring the boring week, ITS BEACH TIME! Those who went fasting can now show off their slimmer body. But it wont last long
The ominous incantations old people recite while reading a booklet makes a good Pinoy horror movie. I admire those who can endure the whole session, you should reward yourself by eating pork.
Weird masks, weird masks everywhere. Clowns aint got nothing on these guys.
A good way to spend time with your lover, Holy Week’s a more romantic time than Valentines day. Or didn’t you know?
A celebration after a boring week. Attend the mass then eat all you can!
Whats a Filipino Holy Week without the bloody fanatics harming themselves for the sake of faith? Love them or hate them, theyre a good tourist attraction.
