Where Will You Be This Holy Week?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It's Holy Week! Let's see what other people will be doing during this break.

The Holy Week may mean a lot of things on a lot of people. But the question how most of the people around you will spend their Holy Week.

I ask a couple of people on the street on How will they spend their break. Someone said just at the house with family, spending some quality time with their love ones. Another person said he will be spending it with his friends on a trip to Hong Kong. A lady said she will be out on the beach with her boyfriend. A teenager said she will be spending it on the different activities with her friends. An old lady said, she will be busy with the church' activities.

These are the responses that i gathered with the people around me or rather around my nieghborhood.

Different cultures, religion and environment have different ways on celebrating the Holy Week. Catholics spend this season as a way of commemorating the sacrifices and the death of Jesus. Others would love to spend their Holy week at home with their family. While some would take this as a chance for them to relax on spa, a beach or even rediscovering nature. Still there are some, who would choose to have this time to finish some work at the office and bring them (workaholic).

Ask a celebrity on how will he spend their Holy Week. Most of them will answer that they will be at this place ( Bahamas, Paris, and etc. ) to relax and have time for themselves. That makes me question have we really forgot the true essence and meaning of the Holy Week?

Call me an old fashioned or what, but i still believe this time of the year should be spend and celebrated what it ought to be. Just like celebrating Christmas on a Chistmas day, a New Year on a New Year's day, a Valentine's on a Valentine's day, and a Holy week should be spent just what a Holy Week should be. This is supposed to be a time for us reflect on the past years' events. It should be a time for us to renew our faith and strengthen them.

Whether you spend you Holy Week on how should it be or not, it's not for me to judge you. This just a simple opinion from me.

Have a great Holy week everyone!
