Holy Week

Every year, I am looking forward on the celebration of the Holy Week. I miss the Catholic way of celebrating Holy Week back home. Although they practice it here in America, I still like the way they do it there. It was a big part of my life growing up.
"Holy Week is the week which precedes the great festival of the Resurrection on Easter Sunday, and which consequently is used to commemorate the Passion of Christ, and the event which immediately led up to it. In Latin is it called hebdomada major, or, less commonly, hebdomada sancta, styling it he hagia kai megale ebdomas. Similarly, in most modern languages (except for the German word Charwoche, which seems to mean "the week of lamentation") the interval between Palm Sunday and Easter Day is known par excellence as Holy Week."
Everyday, I get updates from my sister and she's telling me on what activities they are doing to celebrate the Holy Week. Oh, how I miss home! I just can't wait anymore. I will be seeing them very soon.
