Weekly Photo Challenge: Arranged

Day 240 – March 18, 2012

A timely picture for this week’s Photo Challenge with the theme of “arranged“.

My Spanish teacher told me recently that the big days for the Easter celebration are Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday. The Sunday before Easter kicks off Semana Santa (Holy Week) with the most significant day being Good Friday.

Easter Sunday, she explained, was not the headline act here in Peru.

When I asked her about the Easter Bunny, egg hunts, and chocolate bunnies, she told me that those traditions were not popular here.

Well, apparently someone is trying to give the tradition of candies and confections during Pascua (the Spanish name for Easter) a jump start. I saw the store display seen below, artfully arranged, to entice people to embrace the tradition of consuming chocolate conejos (Spanish for “rabbit”…I was going for alliteration).

Mmmm...chocolate

Feliz Semana Santa and Happy Easter to y’all.
