The greatest event that the Christendom has been celebrating annually since it occurred more than 2,000 years ago is the resurrection of Jesus Christ who is the foundation of Christian Faith.
Holy Week spells traditional hot cross buns, sumptuous lamb dishes, Easter egg hunts, and family gatherings—of course there are also those who fast and attend in special church services—but is there more to this three to four-day long holiday? Back in the Philippines, you surely remember reading the pasyon, participating in the visita iglesia, or witnessing the senakulo. But still, are practices and observances all there is to this annual occasion?
