For people who celebrate Easter, it's not all bunnies and candy. In southern Mexico, the Catholic faithfuls begin Holy Week with an overnight procession. Good Friday in Australia has a more sedate feel, while in the Czech Republic, an old tradition is given a fresh spin. Peruvians in central Lima celebrate with a procession in which worshippers wear purple while carrying the "Lord of the Miracles."
