In Poland the Eve of Easter Sunday is the time of joyful anticipation. That day believers go to church to attend the ritual of the blessing of the foods prepared for Easter breakfast. We carry it in special wicker baskets. Among the necessary goodies in the Easter basket are Easter eggs (a symbol of new life), lamb made of sugar or dough, which symbolises the martyred Christ. We add also a slice of specially prepared ham and sausage, a pinch of salt and a slice of bread. Children usually add chocolate bunny.
Palm Sunday falls on the week preceding Easter and commemorates Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem. On that day believers go to church carrying palms and bouquets of catkins, which are not only a reminder of the events described in the Gospel, but also an expression of the old folktales about the spring rebirth and renewal. In many places in Poland people make traditional colorful palms from willow branches, flowers, tissue paper for competition for the most beautiful and the highest palm. Palm trees often reach a height of several meters. A curiosity is they are done very carefully without any metal parts.
I made crochet doily in sunny color for that day ;)
