In this week's Claire Chats, I talk about how Palm Sunday was commemorated in the medieval and Tudor periods, and how it is celebrated today where I live. I would love to hear how your community, church, or family mark this day, if they do.
Here is a video of the procession at Elche, which includes the palm figures. It's in Spanish, but even if you don't understand it, it is still well worth watching to see the procession and figures.
