Easter Sunday and They are Blowing up Judas

On Easter Sunday in the US
There are Easter baskets
Easter Eggs
Ham and potatoes
Deviled Eggs
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

Paper mache Judas figures lined up in the Jardin

There are witches
Devils
Local politicians
Some you can’t figure out

Judas, not as imagined in the bible, but represented in these figures to be blown up on Easter Sunday
Judas, not as imagined in the bible, but represented in these figures to be blown up on Easter Sunday

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:
