Mexicans who are Catholic usually fast during Lent and Holy Week. In addition, they celebrate this period by going to various solemn processions. On Maundy Thursday, the passage of the washing of the feet is represented in many of the country's churches. On Good Friday, there are Catholics who do a penance and fullfil promises, walking on their knees the whole of the way of the cross or carrying a cross on their shoulders.
