A Little Photo…Semana Santa Celebrations in Antigua

Happy Semana Santa and Easter weekend!

Making a Semana Santa Carpet

It’s absolute craziness here in Antigua, Guatemala. The Semana Santa celebrations are fully underway as the city reenacts the last days of Christ.

Beautiful Semana Santa Carpets

These carpets, or alfombras, decorate all the streets of the city and take a dozen hours to make – the people make them as an offering…they are destroyed as the religious parades walk through the streets.

Expect more Semana Santa stories and photos next week! Have a wonderful holiday :-)
