Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week

Today is Palm Sunday, the first day of Holy Week and the day that commemorates Jesus, the Messiah, entering the city of Jerusalem on the back of a donkey.

Here, where I live in Spain, it's usually marked with processions just like it was in the medieval and Tudor periods in England. Of course, this year, there aren't any processions as we are in lockdown. Last year, though, I shared some footage of the Palm Sunday procession from my nearest town Tijola:

    Thanks for sharing, Claire! It’s a shame that we can’t have those festivities this year, but is certainly a wonderful tradition to celebrate the start of Holy Week.

    What a wonderful celebration of Pqlm Sunday. We have a walk in my village with a cross on Good Friday something that is impossible this year, unfortunately.
