SEMANA SANTA


This is my favourite
"
MARCHA procesional"(click to listen to it). What's your favourite "marcha"? Why?
Easter week is a Catholic celebration in Spain. They celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus and it´s particularly popular in the South. Even though it is a Catholic event, everybody enjoys it. Years ago, it was just a religious feeling. Women wore black clothing, men always wore dark suits with a black tie, and everybody was so serious. Today, in Spain, it's different, together with the religious feeling, people have fun, meet their friends, and see the floats(=pasos) just to enjoy the art in them.

What about EASTER in Great Britain? There're lots of SYMBOLS you'll like to know about.

Good work with this page!

The holy week is a religious and cultural meeting in spain and especially in andalucía and especially also in bollullos.
In our people the holy week is lived very intensely ( intensamente), due to that all the days there are steps in the streets describing the passion of Jesus.

First the borriquita on Sunday, in second place the prendimienmto on Monday, third the cautivo one (that this year didn't go due to the rain), quarter the columna, sixth vera+cruz, seventh the madrugá, eighth the holy burial of crucifix(santo entierro de cristo) and ninth the virgin of happy ( alegrías ¿?) on easter sunday.

I invite all the persons what want arrive and have a good holy week that comes to pas it in bollullos that there is a great environment confrere ( encuentro cofrade)
