Here’s a series of photos that you would usually see in Siniloan, Laguna every Good Friday.
Some would wear masks while they do their act of penitence by whipping their backs.
I’ve noticed in Siniloan, Laguna that there are only a few who wear the skirt and a headdress made of dried palm leaves.
There are also some who won’t wear a mask but will wear a hat or a pair of sunglasses.
I guess there are still a lot of people who wouldn’t understand why people do this. For some, they do this as a vow (“panata”) or do this as a part of a family tradition.
