What is Holy Week

PALM SUNDAY FOR CHRISTIANS (First Sunday of the week)
Palm Sunday has a celebration in which the last acts of Jesus are celebrated. The faithful usually carry olive bouquets with them to be blessed by the celebrating Priest, carrying great symbolism full of faith.

During Holy Monday, the last acts of Jesus are remembered before his crucifixion. Large festivals and processions are held in some towns and cities, attracting many worshipers from various regions. During Holy Tuesday we continue to reflect on the various passages that recall the life of Jesus, preparing for the most relevant days, in which the most important passages are commemorated, coming to an end with Holy Wednesday.

Holy Thursday is considered the first day of the Easter Triduum (the three days that the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ are celebrated). On this day the passage of the Last Supper of Jesus before being crucified is remembered, in which he presents the Eucharist, materialized as bread and wine, representing the flesh and blood of God.

During Good Friday, the Crucifixion of Jesus is commemorated, which took place on a mountain called Gólgota (place of the skull in Aramaic) in the year 33, being one of the most important days of Holy Week.

As you may already suppose, the ways of celebrating Holy Week or Easter may vary depending on the countries, since each one has its own customs or rites. Here are some of the ways to celebrate Holy Week around the world:
