Each year the week before Easter is filled with celebrations. Semana Santa, or Holy Week, marks the end of the Lent period, and the streets come alive with religious processions, music and more. Participants include not only locals but many vacationing nationals too. On Easter Sunday friends and family members often indulge in breaking confetti-filled eggs over each other as a part of the tradition.
Mexico remains 90% Catholic and Semana Santa is the first part of the two-week Easter celebrations in Mexico. It begins with Palm Sunday with a special mass. The altars at Iglesia de San Miguel and Igelsia de Corpus Christi are decorated with palm crosses. Jueves Santo (Holy Thursday) marks the beginning of Holy Week with a re-enactment of the Last Supper. A Passion play of the crucifixion is performed on Viernes Santo (Holy Friday). Following mass there is a burning of a papier-mâché effigy of Los Judas (Judas) and afterwards a candle light vigil begins that will last through until Easter Sunday.
