During the Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Black Saturday), businesses and commercial establishments cease operations. while local TV stations go off the air or have limited broadcasting hours. For Yue, that meant no malling and no shopping - which is usually scheduled every Friday.
I had to explain to him why there's 'no shopping Friday' today.
And why we're not going to SM to play at the arcade.
Or go shopping for books, clothes, and toys.
It was a tad difficult for me to find the right words to explain what Good Friday is all about, but I guess he understood the essence of what I was trying to say. I was quite sure of it, because he didn't bug me with endless questions after.
I promised him we'll go Easter Egg-hunting come Sunday instead. Hope everyone's having a soulful and meaningful Holy Week!
