Palm Sunday or Flower’s Sunday in Romania

Happy Palm Sunday!

Communication for Development of Ideas

Romanian Orthodox are one week ahead of Easter Celebrations and this means today is Palm Sunday or Flower’s Sunday.

Since Romanians do not have palm trees we’re using pussy willows in churches celebrating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Christians are then taking these branches and adorn their homes. Occasionally they are also using lilac flowers.

Palm Sunday is also Flower’s Sunday in Romania meaning that whoever wears a flower-related name is celebrated.

So I’m using white lilac which I took away from the local cemetery and planted some years ago in my garden (did not know it would turn white, it flowered this year) to say happy Flower’s Sunday to all the flowers around here!
