I believe there is nothing more contradictive and hypocritical than Holy Week as it is celebrated by people in Latin America, or to narrow it down even more, in Central America.
The celebration is so twisted, that religious people look forward to holy week because they get to drink, party and spend the little money they have on their vacation expenses, and while there is nothing wrong with enjoying yourself every now and then, why are these people so stupid and choose to party when they should be in a calm state, meditating about their saviour and his death. I just dont get how hypocritical most people are about holy week and their "love" for their god. They have turned holy week into a spring break, and it beats the whole purpose of their religious beliefs. And it goes to show just how weak their religious commitment is. Probably because they kind of know it's all a big scam but dont have the guts to admit it even to themselves.
