Palm Sunday

Courtesy of St. Mary parish in Appleton, Wisconsin, many instructions for braiding palms, a custom of many ethnic groups. Click HERE.

Another custom . . . burning a piece of dried palm during storms for protection.

For many in the Toledo area, Palm Sunday calls to mind the Palm Sunday tornadoes of 1965. You can see a 1965 WTOL documentary on the tornadoes HERE.
