It’s 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 don’t usually do during ordinary days. Now is the time to detoxify yourself, both body and soul.
Some completely don’t 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.
It’s like joining in a fun run but 90% slower. No matter who’s first, everyone always ends up in church.
It’s the time of year when superstitions are remembered again. ‘Don’t go outside ‘cause evil will befall you’, ‘Don’t 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 there’s internet.
After enduring the boring week, IT’S BEACH TIME! Those who went fasting can now show off their slimmer body. But it won’t 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 ain’t got nothing on these guys.
A good way to spend time with your lover, Holy Week’s a more romantic time than Valentine’s day. Or didn’t you know?
A celebration after a boring week. Attend the mass then eat all you can!
What’s a Filipino Holy Week without the bloody fanatics harming themselves for the sake of faith? Love them or hate them, they’re a good tourist attraction.
