Palm Sunday

Sunday is Palm Sunday, a movable holiday that follows Easter. Jesus rode on a donkey through the city gate of Jerusalem, in his honor the townspeople prepared clothes and palm branches in the streets. Palm Sunday ushers in Holy Week, which commemorates the suffering and death of Jesus. Here in the province of Salzburg, this ecclesiastical festival is particularly associated with customs and tradition. Indispensable are the "Palmbuschen", they are considered as ominous blessing bringers - one puts them after the service in special places in the house or puts them in the garden or on the field.
