Reason #103: bring your olive branch to Palm Sunday
On Palm Sunday Catholics other Christians gather in a ritual to commemorate the day Jesus entered Jerusalem, before he was crucified. They carry with them palm branches, or in our case, olive tree branches.
Don Jakša, the parish priest, blesses the branches before the procession. Choir ladies sing and we say prayers.
Everyone joins in the procession to the cathedral.
Most people bring their own olive branches. But some go the extra mile in effort and creativity:
And my friend Ruža with her bunch of olive branches and sun in her eyes :)
