Easter Sawdust Carpets

Easter is quite festive in Belize due to it’s large Christian population. One local tradition is the sawdust carpets that are made on the roadways for Good Friday. The carpets are made by faithful parishioners near their own church’s for the other parishioners to see on their way to the services. These are beautiful carpets made from colored sawdust, flower pedals, ash and even sea shells. Each carpet takes weeks to come up with a design and to color all the materials. These carpets are true master pieces that bring the community together for this long standing religious tradition.

Hopefully next year we will be able to see these amazing sawdust carpets in person.
