Private companies are free to give full or partial holidays to their employees.
This lets people return to their home provinces for the Triduum, and holidaymakers to leave for their destinations, making it one of the country's busiest travel seasons. In the evening, long processions depicting the Passion of Christ are held in towns throughout the provinces of Pampanga, Bulacan, Rizal, Laguna, and in the Ilocandia , as well as in Makati in Metro Manila. Except in the Bulakenyo towns of Baliuag and Pulilan , the Passion tableaux are excluded from the Good Friday afternoon procession. Maundy Thursday Huwebes Santo is the first statutory public holiday of the week, and marks the beginning of the Paschal Triduum.
The first rite of the day is the Chrism Mass , in which parishioners join their priest for morning Mass in the cathedral , especially in the large dioceses and archdioceses. The clergy on the day renew their priestly vows. This Mass, which is presided by the bishop of the diocese, is when the Chrism , oil of catechumens and the oil for the sick are consecrated after the homily.
More titles to consider
Priests then bring portions of the oils to their respective parishes after the service and store these for future use. However, in other dioceses where logistics and other valid reasons hamper gathering the clergy on this day, the Chrism Mass is held earlier in the week. Though not mandatory, the afternoon service customarily includes a re-enactment of the Washing of the Feet of the Twelve Apostles. The service ends abruptly with a somber procession of the Blessed Sacrament , which is brought to the church's Altar of Repose. Churches remain open until midnight for those who want to venerate the Blessed Sacrament, with others going to one of several priests on standby to confess their sins.
Good Friday Biyernes Santo is the second public holiday of the week, and considered the most solemn day of the year. This solemn rite on Good Friday was attended by both local and foreign tourists. Mass is not celebrated on this day. Instead, people gather in churches in the afternoon for the Veneration of Cross service and the Mass of the Presanctified.
The Mass of the Presanctified is said at the altar stripped of decorations, and without the Anaphora as the sacramental bread was already consecrated on Maundy Thursday. In some places most famously in the province of Pampanga as Maleldo , the day's processions include devotees who self- flagellate and sometimes even have themselves nailed to crosses.
While frowned upon by the Church, devotees consider these to be personal expressions of penance, whether in fulfilment of a vow or in thanksgiving for a prayer granted. The San Fernando local government says these reenactments are regarded as a part of Pampanga's and the city's cultural heritage.

Reenactments of Christ's crucifixion in the village began in but the first actual crucifixion during the re-enactment took place 4 years after, in Television and radio stations also broadcast their own special Siete Palabras programmes from large churches in Manila, usually beginning at noon so as to end before the veneration service. The usual highlight of Good Friday is the Santo Entierro "holy interment" , which is both the name of the rite itself and of the statue of the dead Christ that is its focus.
Comparable to the Eastern Orthodox practice of processing the epitaphios , the image of the Santo Entierro is laid on an ornate, flower-decked calandra or bier and brought around town. Its retinue is normally composed of images of saints connected to the Passion narrative, such as Peter , Mary Magdalene , and John the Evangelist. Tradition dictates that regardless of the number of images used in the procession, that of the Virgin Mary, dressed in black and gold as the mourning Mater Dolorosa , is always last in line.
Some places accord the Santo Entierro traditional, pre-Christian funeral rites such as washing the corpse, laying the body in state , or seating it in a funerary chair.www.amouradelicacies.com/wp-includes/2019-09-24/7649.php
Vow of Penance (LARGE PRINT)
In Paete , Laguna the icon of the Santo Entierro is smoked over burning lansones peelings: during the procession, the shoulder-borne calandra makes several stops, and each time is placed over the burning peelings. Mercy, Lord! In Alimodian , Iloilo the Santo Entierro is interred — not by the altar as is customary elsewhere — but at the church doors, to let the people venerate the icon usually by kissing its feet. There is also a large crucifix before the altar for people to venerate and kiss. At night, young girls in costumes and bearing lit tapers, walk barefoot with the Mater Dolorosa in a second procession around the town square.
The maidens meditate and mourn, reenacting the burial that Christ's female disciples gave him. Several traditional taboos are customarily observed on this day, such as the avoidance of excessive noisemaking, and in older times, bathing except for health reasons. The prohibitions usually begin after PST. The hymn is absent throughout Lent except on solemnities and Maundy Thursday.

Traditional taboos from the previous day, such as merrymaking and the consumption of meat, are carried over and sometimes broken at noon. This includes swimming in a river or the sea, as superstition warns against bathing on Good Friday afternoon. Most commercial establishments operate on shorter hours, with smaller enterprises in many areas remaining closed until Easter Sunday or Easter Monday , but some return to normal in major urban areas.
Television and radio stations broadcast on shorter hours with special programming, or remain off-air. The ritual is meant to depict the apocryphal reunion of Christ and his Mother, the Virgin Mary, after the Resurrection. Depending on the size and wealth of the congregation, the processions include statues of any or all the Myrrhbearers , particularly the Three Marys Mary, mother of James , Mary Magdalene , and Mary Salome , along with Peter and John the Evangelist.
