Being in a Catholic country, and with a Catholic upbringing, spending the Holy Week has always been a “quiet” event. The idea is that for the whole week, we remember and reminisce what happened in Jesus’ lives and do our own little quiet reflection.
Although we may not do the whole “ritual” on what a family is supposed to do, we do enjoy our family time together. This is that one moment in a year when everyone is on leave or out of school. Aside from telling and re-telling stories of what happened in the week, we also take this time to just being a family.
For me, what I love the most is taking out my pedicure tools and doing both the husband and the little one their personal foot spa. Yes, it is an indulgence but hey, it’s just once a year, right? (or maybe once a month?)
