One of the things that makes the Semana Santa celebrations in Antigua, Guatemala so special is that everyone participates including the children, who were especially fun to watch.
Over this year’s week-long Easter celebration (one of the most elaborate in the world) we saw costumed children walking along with their parents in solemn processions meant to tell the story of Jesus’ crucifixion. We saw wide-eyed children watching processions from the sidewalks and roof tops. We saw children helping their families create temporary street carpets called alfombras. We even saw children carrying wooden floats that are the center pieces of the processions.
All of them were adorable and here are the child stars of Semana Santa 2011:
