Lent Season Decorations Over City Hall

Lent Season Decorations

As in previous years, La Antigua Guatemala begins wearing violet or purple decorations over doors, windows and balconies. Heck, even the jacaranda trees wear violet during Cuaresma.

Also, in previous years we have discussed the significance of the color purple (or violet) which is very prominent during Lent and Holy Week. The first person who can come up with the correct answer, the title of the post and the date it was publish will win a Semana Santa post card made from one of the photos previously shown at AntiguaDailyPhoto. Remember the answer is in the archives. Good luck to all participants!

    Hi,
    the color purple is used to represent the pain and suffering of the crucifixion of Christ and it also represents royalty and therefore the fullness of life after the resurrection.
    we love antiqua, been there several times on medical mission trips.
    God Bless!

  • We don’t do this in Australia, although purple cloths are placed over statues in Church. Lovely photo.
    Cheers.
