El Salvador
Young Catholics of this Central American nation get creative on Good Friday. Carrying buckets of colorfully dyed sawdust that they've prepared for weeks, young adults will spend hours on their hands and knees to create an alfrombas, "carpet," depicting the different scenes of Christ's Passion, death, and resurrection. After their long, hard work, the Easter procession will then walk over this carpet, honoring the youngsters' efforts.
