People around the world celebrate Good Friday and Easter in their own unique ways. While some cultures influence its people to peacefully enjoy lamb roast, chase Easter bunnies, and perform Morris dancing as a means to celebrate, other cultures lead people to do something more unique and, well, more bizarre.
In the Philippines, for example, there are Christians who whip themselves using metal chains until their backs become bloody and have themselves crucified as acts of penitence. In Jerusalem, on the other hand, devotees carry wooden crosses on their backs and walks through the streets to honor the sacrifice that Jesus Christ had made and to celebrate the subsequent miracle of resurrection.
Below is a compilation of images showing how Good Friday was celebrated in different parts of the world:
