EASTER Easter is the most important Christian holiday. In Poland most of people are Catholics. On those days we celebrate Easter. We bake cakes, make salads, cook eggs and buy ham. In this days we are celebrating the death of Jesus.
PALM SUNDAY is called also The Sunday of the Lord's Passion. Palm Sunday is a Christian moving feast that falls on the Sunday before Easter. In many Christian churches, Palm Sunday includes a procession of the assembled worshipers carrying palms, representing the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem. The difficulty of procuring palms in unfavorable climates led to their substitution with branches of native trees, including box, yew, willow, and olive.
