Semana Santa is coming

Semana Santa marks a catholic celebration with big roots in the area, from the indigenous interpretations to the spring breakers week long party, for most of the people its a week to spend with family, usually in the various beaches or by the river having some mariscos and carne asada and attending church.

The weeks before Semana Santa are called Cuaresma and its a period of repent and forgiveness. A long standing tradition its the representation of the procession of Christ by the various native Indians, usually Yoremes and Yaquis, called Fariseos o Matachines.

Here are some interesting links.
