Holy Week blues


Around Holy Week Christians start to prepare themselves for this weeklong spiritual journey involving some amount of physical pain and sacrifices, sorrow and repentance, and finally joyful celebration on Easter Sunday to mark the end of Holy Week at least for this year. There will be a lull everywhere, days are usually hotter, and there is this tinge of sadness hanging in the air anywhere you go because the streets are deserted except when there is the procession attended by all the faithful. Everything comes back to life on Easter Sunday and that's when everybody would want to rush to nearby beaches to celebrate the resurrection of Christ on Easter.

celebrating the holy week has been a tradition not only in the philippines but also in other christian countries... its a way of repenting in our sins and commemorating the death of our savior, people are used in going to church and praying along with their families... after the maundy thursday, good friday and black saturday comes the easter sunday wherein we celebrate the easter sunday, its a happy day so must of the people went to beaches or have their family gathering...... indeed, people are looking forward for each coming holy weeks..
