    The so called Holy Week of Catholics is a religious observance where fasting and abstinence is encouraged. For our part, we avail of that opportunity as a good reason to indulge in no meat dishes, mostly vegetables and with a little fish. For the whole week, the money we save is no joke. Vegetable is very cheap compared to meat and fish is also cheap here although it depends on the kind of fish. The most that we eat during Holy Week is boiled egg and vegetables and bread are the staple.

    We are not Catholic but we observe a monthly fasting of now eating foods for 2 consecutive meals. The money we allot for the meals is given to the Church as a fund for fast offering to help the poor and the needy.

    On the other hand, we never observe the Holy Week but we set aside one Sunday for commemorating the life, the mission, and the death of Jesus Christ as our Savior and Redeemer.
