It's that time of the year when we are supposed to contemplate about Jesus and the sufferings he went through ... back when I was younger, we used to visit the church and do the "Way of the Cross" with the family. We weren't supposed to have 'fun', like watch television, or play noisy games. It was part of the tradition. Meat was strictly prohibited, too. However, while living here in the city, I noticed that most families go on vacations instead. lol.
Quite different, but I believe that as long as people don't hurt others then they can do what they want. But that's just my thoughts ... yours may be different. :)
