Easter is fast-approaching, and leading up to the springtime holiday is Holy Week, which, in Roman Catholic tradition, is the last week of Lent, taking place right before Easter (which falls on Sunday, March 20th this year). Parades, processions, traditional celebrations, lively festivities, marching bands, festive foods: These are the sights, sounds, and flavors of Holy Week around the globe. Dominican Republic’s Holy Week traditions are an integral part of religious culture. Semana Santa is the year’s most important holiday, and many residents throughout the country have the entire week off from work which is taken by many for reflection and penitence while others use for relaxation and leisure.
