Hi my fellow lotters! It's a palm Sunday today! Palm Sunday is a christian moveable feast that falls on Sunday before Easter.The feast commemorates Jesus's triumphant entry to Jerusalem, an event mentioned in all four Canonical Gospels. In many Christian churches,Palm Sunday is marked by the distribution of palm leaves (often tied into crosses)to the assembled worshippers.The difficulty of procuring palms for that day's ceremonies in unfavorable climates for palms led to the substitution of boughs of box,yew,willow or other native trees.The Sunday was often designated by the names of these trees as Yew Sunday or by the general term Branch Sunday.

I went to the church this morning and our parish priest was so very dramatic that time and as usual there's a procession before the mass had started.
