On Good Friday, the families that were driven away by the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in the 1990s, make their way back home to fulfill the century-old tradition of carrying symbols and icons of the last days of Jesus. Tradition dictates that they wear black sultanas, cover their heads and put a crown made of leaves. The tradition is passed per generation of the family with the age starting from 4 years old.
This tradition is not present any where in Asia but Bacolor, Pampanga Philippines.
