EASTER break


The week before Easter Sunday in Uruguay, is called Semana Santa, or Holy Week. Also called Tourism Week, it is the week before Easter where a lot of people don't have to work and they have the opportunity to spend time with their families and do things like hiking, camping, and vacationing in different parts of Uruguay.

WE HAVE A WHOLE WEEK OFF! NO SCHOOL FOR KIDS!
ON EASTER SUNDAY FAMILIES SHARE LUNCH TOGETHER.
SOME OF THEM GO ON EGG HUNTS IN THEIR BACKYARDS.
WE DID THE SAME IN SCHOOL!!!
