On Easter Sunday in the US
There are Easter baskets
Ham and potatoes
All preceded by
Weeks of the Easter bunny at the mall
Aisles of candy in all the stores
That will make it into Easter baskets
Then sold the following week at 75% off.
On Easter Sunday in San Miguel
At 11:30 A.M.
Truckloads of paper mache Judas figures
Are lined up in the Jardin
There are witches
Some you can’t figure out
But it doesn’t matter because
They all represent Judas,
Who betrayed Jesus,
And he is strung with fireworks
That swirl him around and explode him
25 times this Easter.
A little slideshow, and videos below of the festivities:

I love your blog, the way it brings Mexican culture to life. This looks to be a particularly lively, heartfelt and fun event. Thanks.
