On Good Friday on Gozo, various towns and villages honor the Passion of Christ with solemn processions of statues in which participants are dressed as biblical characters. Some processions include men bearing a cross or dragging chains tied to their bare feet, as an act of faith or penance. The procession in Zebbug with horses and colorful costumes attracts many visitors due to its extravagance.
The holidays peak on Easter Sunday when the morning ringing of church bells announces the Resurrection of Christ. Traditionally, all events are held in churches. Joyful processions stroll through the streets accompanied by bands playing celebratory tunes. The village of Xaghra is home to Gozo Easter Festival with folk singing, dancing, and traditional Maltese food. Easter Sunday is also celebrated with a special family lunch.
