Happy Palm Suday!

Over here it's a bit like Halloween for you. Kids go around from door to door with a willow sprigs that they've decorated with all kind of stuff. They do have a special spell with which they wish the all good, healthiness etc. to the folks living in the house while flinging that sprig like a magic wand. The folk will (or at least should) get the sprig, the kids will have their pay, often chocolate eggs or other candy, sometimes money etc.

It's interesting to think where that stems from. I guess it's a some kind of merger of pagan remain from hundred years ago when Christianity hadn't landed here yet and then Christianity. You can see that for example in different variations from different part of the country. Like going around with sprigs is very typical especially here in eastern parts of the country (even it has spreaded over whole the country nowadays), then typical for western parts is Easter bonfires and kids dressing up as witches. I've heard that those sprigs are meant to sybolize palm leaves that were put in front of Jesus since we haven't palms here. I still bet that the witch tradition stems from somewhere else.

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."
