Holy Week in the Philippines

The holy week has started and the Philippine government has announced over national news that tomorrow shall be half - day holiday so people can still go home and be ready for the holy days.

Filipinos are quite religious in spite of the ill doings of most people but holy week is usually consumed for long family vacations or spiritual retreats.  Beaches and tourist hot spots are now swarmed up.

Last year, we  did visit for the first time, Samal Islands. My other siblings simply enjoyed the long travel, white beach and cold sleep at our tents. My kid since then keeps on asking when we can come back again.

But, regardless of how we commemorate the passion and death  midst of fun and relaxation.
