Antigua Holy Week Various Vistas

Antigua Holy Week Various Vistas by Leonel -Nelo- Mijangos

Sábado de Gloria is a quieter day with only small processions carried by women known as Las Dolorosas (The Grief or Suffering women) follwing the Vía Dolorosa. Sábado de Gloria is also the day when Judas’ Will (testament) is read, a sort of farcical speech or a neighborhood chisme speech. Kids and teenagers also play at getting each other wet with water balloons. Although I have not seen these two traditions in many years; I wonder if they still exist.

Today we take the opportunity to share various Holy Week vistas from La Antigua Guatemala.

Enjoy your weekend and set your timer for the 5-year anniversary of on May 1st. What should we do?

Also, remember that you can check out what is happening during Holy Week in XelaDailyPhoto and GuatemalaDailyPhoto.

    Rudy, for the 5th anniversary of LAGDP, I will be participating in a march to demand immigration reform, but I had a few ideas for you:

    2) A foto montage of los fantasmas de La Antigua
    3) A foto montage of bellas fantasmas de La Antigua
