  1. It fascinates me how different cultures use different types of trees for Palm Sunday, we discovered her in Moscow they us what I call Pussy Willows. We have seen old ladies selling them all week and we wondered why. Coming form Australia I hadn’t thought about it before as we have palms to use 🙂 Great photo.

  2. Like the other Michele who commented, I’m also fascinated to see what people use around the world for Palm Sunday. Here in Malaysia, a Korean friend of mine kept referring to Coconut Day, and we had no idea what she was talking about. After a moment, we realized she meant Palm Sunday and wanted to know where to get palms. On this tropical island, they are all over the place, so we suggested she climb a tree and chop some down herself.
