Holy Week
Description:
Holy Week is the week before Easter. Many events, starting with Palm Sunday and continuing through Easter Sunday. The biggest event is the Silent Procession on Good Friday, usually going down the Alcala in the late afternoon. The week after Easter is also a holiday and many schools and businesses will be closed for all or part of this time. Easter Day itself is very quiet with many stores and restaurants closed. We have heard that this is a good time to visit Mexico City, as many people there leave the city for the beaches.

La semana santa es la semana antes de la Pascua. Muchos eventos, comenzando con el Domingo de Ramos y continuando hasta el Domingo de Pascua. El evento más importante es la Procesión silenciosa el Viernes Santo, que generalmente se realiza en el Alcalá a última hora de la tarde. La semana posterior a la Pascua es también un día festivo y muchas escuelas y empresas permanecerán cerradas durante todo o parte de este tiempo. El día de Pascua en sí es muy tranquilo, con muchas tiendas y restaurantes cerrados. Hemos escuchado que este es un buen momento para visitar la Ciudad de México, ya que muchas personas salen de la ciudad hacia las playas.
