Do You Celebrate Holy Week In Your Country?

5 posts in this topic

In other countries, they don't have work during the Holy Week. They consider it a long holiday off. Especially Holy Thursday and Good Friday. I think it's double pay for those days if you are going to work...   People usually stay at home or visit different churches so they can pray the rosary.

Yes, we do here in the Philippines.  It's long vacation for most of us and people go to summer spots in the country. Usually we go swimming. Others go on hike and visit different provinces..

 

If it's during Good Friday and Black Saturday, people stay at home to watch shows and movies about Jesus. We also pray the rosary and it's part of our culture to visit 7 churches on Good Friday. It could be more but 7 is fine. ^_^

I think Asian people who are mostly Christians value Holy Week so much. Some of them think of it as vacation time due to long weekend but I hope they realize it's for remembering how Jesus sacrified Himself for all mankind.

Hmmmm I think it depends on each country's culture and tradition. Not all of us are Christians and some people don't believe in Jesus. I guess we just need to respect each other's belief.
