Lots of people nowadays are looking forward to the Holy Week to have a break from work and relax in beautiful places. Many people still want to spend time in churches to listen to God's word. I, myself, opt to stay at home, listren to religious songs then go to church for the celebration/mass. What do you usually do during this time?

Vacation and reflection can go together. It is so nice to reflect when you are in a vacation. Although vacation means enjoying, it can also mean a time to be with nature, and to be in solitude with God. This Holy Week, I am just here at home with my family and relatives. Every night we have a prayer (novena) for my grandpa who just passed away. There are times that I ponder and reflect on some things. Holy Week really is a time of reflection, prayer and family reunion.

well if your a holy person you would always put into your mind that holy week is a time for reflection and devoting your self to God.It is a time to ask your self what is your purpose truly in this world of sinners. It is a time that we should think and regain our faith in God for God is always supreme almighty.He is the greatest man's savior that we should give ourselves into the hands of God. But for those who are not that holy, holyweek is a time for vacation,relax and fun, although family stick together but in a place for fun not in a worship place like church

Vacation and reflection can be both applied during Holy week. While on vacation, a person can do some reflection and spare time to God through prayers or any means he or she would like it to be. Within this week, I usually stay at home, read a Bible or watch movies related to it and do some reflection and prayers. Me and my mom will also do a Station of the Cross..and going to out to attend a mass is also being practiced.

i think it will depend upon the person which one one he/she will do during holy week,for me its a kind of vacation because its the only time that i could only have vacation,though i still reflect but not that very showy like to our elders now a days.of course going to church never be gone when lenten season is coming.
