Men in Black
In Mexico, Catholics also celebrate Holy Week with various pilgrimages. Churches are decorated with flowers and plants and hundreds of candles on Thursday, drawing a flood of patrons. In some parts of the country, people carry images of Jesus around their villages, washing the pictures with after-shave and hanging them on large crosses on Good Friday. Devotees in Mexico City also traditionally burn an effigy of Judas on Holy Saturday. In the weeks leading up to Semana Santa, people rejoice in the streets, some made up with oil and ash as in this photo of men in Puebla.
