Because it's already Holy Week.

The singing of the Pasyon is one of the most enduring Filipino traditions. In it, groups of devotees, usually families, cofradias, and sometimes even the merely curious, take turns chanting the Passion of Our Lord for a twenty four hour period. The pabasa (i.e., the chanting of the Pasyon) is held continuously, with only minor breaks allowed. It is commonly held on noon of Maundy Thursday and lasts all the way to noon of Good Friday.
