Argentinians call it Las Pascuas. As in Spain and most South American countries, Easter celebration in Argentina is held as a combination of two separate big observances: Semana Santa and Pascua. The former means the whole of the Holy Week (Palm Sunday or Domingo de Ramos, to Easter Saturday). And the Pascua is the observance for the period from the Resurrection Sunday to the following Saturday and in many communities the full Passion Play is represented or performed. For most people, this two-week period is the time for a great vacation and they enjoy this time with the community of their choice.
