30.03.2018 Christian Palm Sunday Celebrations

Christian Palm Sunday holiday will be celebrated in Russia on April, 1.  Traditionally this holiday falls on the Sunday before Easter and has many names: “Yew Sunday”, “Branch Sunday” and so on.  It worships Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, when people laid down their cloaks and small branches of trees in front of him. In Russia an integral part of the holiday are considered to be pussy-willow branches, which serve as a decoration for people’s houses during the holiday. Traditionally, these branches are blessed on the Eve of the Feast, or before the Divine Liturgy on Sunday morning.
