Salubong or the Easter Vigil is a traditional celebration of Filipinos where the Black Veiled statue of Mother Mary  welcomes the statue of the Risen Lord as angels sings Alleluia. Then, an angel (child) or for some, a bird will fall on top of Mother Mary and unveils the black cloth that covers her to signify the end of agony.  Colorful confetti, flying birds and fireworks will give colors to the celebration of the Easter Sunday.
