In a matter of days, crowds will be waving around their “lukay” in the air and imagine that Jesus Christ is walking in the middle of the crowd. Palm Sunday or Domingo de Ramos will be is an omen that tell us that we shouldn’t let ourselves get injured or wounded because the Lord will be dead by Good Friday.
Aside from the fact that it is “preferable” that you shouldn’t eat pork, unless you’re going to die because you have nothing else to eat, there are actually a lot of reasons why you should love Holy Week. I am not sure if I am making any sense here but let me give you a list of what I just had in mind.
Oh yeah! It will be a long holiday! Pack your bags and prepare to leave home or go back home!
Since everybody will be going back to their hometown or going away for vacation, there will be no such thing as vehicular traffic congestion. The only traffic you might be experiencing at this time will be human traffic during processions.
There’s no work! Of course! There will be a vacation! What else do you expect?
Since you have no work and you can go on vacation, you can spend your time on things and people that matter most, your family!
Try asking every household if they have binignit on Holy Week and 9 times out of ten, the answer will be yes. Try to ask for a bowl then you’ll get yourself free snacks! Hehe!
If you want to make your own binignit, shop for the ingredients at the nearest wet market near you and prove to your family or nosy neighbors how good of a cook you are!
Monsignor told you not to eat baboy or anything that starts with letter “b” during Holy Week. Since your bad cholesterol levels will go down, the act of not eating pork might eventually lower your blood pressure. If you really can’t control your urge to eat baboy, eat mamoy, maka, or manok instead.
Perhaps you have been too busy with your life, always working and (definitely) partying hard. You’ve had less sleep and forever driven by the goals you have in mind.
Take a breather! The human body was not made to work 24/7 in 365 days! Geeez!
Even Jesus Christ went to sleep and took a lot of rest so why won’t you?
Since the malls will be closed, especially on Good Friday, you can’t shop! Do I hear a coin dropping in the piggy bank guys?
Visita Iglesia is an activity when your family or friends can bond and have a great time. You can have a picnic in between the whole day activity or have a grand dinner after visiting all the churches in your list.
10. There’s lots of lechon on Easter Sunday!liveinthephilippines.com
If you followed what Monsignor told you about pork, I guess it’s not too bad for you to eat lechon on Easter Sunday however, if you’ll overdo it, I might come running at ‘ya and give you chest compressions (yours truly is going to give you a CPR if you’ll get a heart attack).
