Today is Palm Sunday in Armenia. And for the first time in my life I went to church on this day to participate in celebrations.
I’m not that religious, but I do love some of the religious traditions and celebrations, because just like holidays, they kind of unite people. And they make one more day stand out.
I don’t really know how people celebrate Palm Sunday in other countries, but here people go to church, listen to liturgy, buy holy branches, take them home. The branches are supposed to bring good luck and prosperity to the household. You leave them in the house for a year, until the next Palm Sunday.
Despite massive crowds, too much sunshine and hot weather, I still enjoyed this day. Everything felt so inspiring and positive, I loved all colorful flowers, willows, wreaths and rye all around. The whole street was like a flower kingdom, which of course I’d enjoy much more, if there weren’t so many people. But still, everything felt really magical. You couldn’t possibly stay sad around so many bright colors, they instantly light up your mood and day.
This post didn’t really have a point, just wanted to share all these multi-colors and spring vibes with you. Happy Palm Sunday!
