Love snowglobes? So do I! I have made some very special Easter snowglobes with Paint Shop Pro. You can see these at Easter Globes

Easter in Mexico

I looked for info on Easter in Guatemala, but was unable to find anything about my daughter's birth country. Mexico is a close Latin American neighbor-so I am including the information I found abut how Easter is celebrated there.

In Mexico, Easter is a combination of Semana Santa or Holy Week which is Palm Sunday to Easter Saturday and Pascua which is Resurrection Sunday until the following Saturday. Semana Santa celebrates the last days of the Christ's life. Pascua is the celebration of the Christ's Resurrection. It is also the release from the sacrifices of Lent. In many communities, they may enact a full Passion Play from the Last Supper, the Betrayal, the Judgement, the Procession of the 12 Stations of the Cross, the Crucifixion and last but not least the Resurrection. In some communities, flagellation and/or real crucifixion might also be included. The enactments are often spectacularly staged, costumed and acted, with participants preparing for their roles for nearly the full year leading up to Semana Santa

At our house, we celebrate by going to church, and then out to eat with family or friends. Sometimes we stay home, and sometimes we travel. Easter egg hunts have also been popular.
