#285 I miss feste – 5

La Domenica delle Palme, ‘palm Sunday’

People brings to the Church branches of olive and palms leaves

Palmes are sometimes artistically  braided

A few cities are particularly famous for their braided palms, such as Bordighera on the Riviera Ligure.

In my area, in the past, Children use to bring to the Church a cake, along with their olive branches and palm leaves. The family met for lunch and shared the cake, a ciambella (lit. ‘donut’) or in my dialect canestrello that had been blessed during the Mass.
