In different locations around the globe, the Holy Week is awaited with great expectation. In Spain, for instance, it is a big thing. Each place celebrates this popular religious event in its own way. However, the most important and recurring act is the procession. Where, at the rhythm of drums, people carry the images of Jesus through the streets. It is a religious parade but, a parade after all.
There are people who get dressed for the occasion. In fact, if it is properly done, there is a protocol to follow. Tradition demands mourning. The dress code is a plain black dress, which can be velvet but never lace. That is so because during the most part of the Holy Week, the death of Christ is commemorated. Despite this, the closure day of the week signifies Christ’s resurrection. And finally, it is time to wear white again.
