Palm Sunday (17.04.2011)

Today was Palm Sunday and generally, in the Coptic Orthodox church, we get some palm leaves on the day before, usually Saturday evening, and we spend the evening as well as Sunday morning, at church during the Mass (Christian Liturgy), crafting the palm leaves.

An example is this donkey as it is said that Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey on Sunday (now known as Palm Sunday).
