Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Black Saturday, and Resurrection or Easter Sunday, the holy week is a very important holiday for predominantly Christian Filipinos. It’s when Jesus Christ and his apostles had their last supper on Maundy Thusday, had his trial, crucifixion and death on Good Friday, his “rest” in the tomb on Black Saturday, and finally his resurrection on Easter Sunday signifying his promise of eternal life to his followers.
This is also a time where students, workers, and employees get a much needed vacation from work. Traditionally, though most stores and malls stay partially open even on Christmas and New Years, a lot more (including huge shopping malls) close during Holy Week’s Thursday and Friday.
We’ll take a short break this week too, to make time for our own families and friends. For now, we hope you enjoy your vacation as well. We mustn’t forget the significance of this religious holiday, but for now let’s all rest up and enjoy our long weekend. We’ll see you all again next week!
