Allan Wall writes about how Holy Week is observed in Mexico.
A colorful custom: "Another tradition still popular in southern Mexico is the 'burning of Judas,' practiced on Sábado de Gloria, in which effigies of Judas (with firecrackers inside!) are burnt. The Judas effigy is often in the form of a contemporary person, frequently an unpopular politician. It should be interesting to see who gets burnt in effigy this Sábado de Gloria."
