Memories of an unconfined Holy Thursday - La Provincia

This is probably the most atypical Holy Thursday in recent years, and even decades. And not only because citizens are confined inside their homes, but also because, strange as it may seem, the temperature accompanies and there is no rain in sight, unlike in recent years.

"Until May forty do not take off your dress." But this Easter week you will not need the skirt or the umbrella, rather the swimsuit and the sunglasses, at least, to go up to the roof or go out on the balcony.

This year celebrations and liturgies can be followed from the sofa, accompanied by television, radio and other telematic means. Given the current health crisis, all liturgical celebrations will take place without the presence of the faithful, as reported by the Vatican in his web page.

If there is something these traditional festivals have, beyond the object of worship, it is the fact of meeting and sharing. For this reason, The Province has wanted to gather the most emblematic and multitudinous moments of past celebrations.

This procession has been held since the 1960s accompanying the carving of 'The Lord in La Burrita', originating in 1897.
