Before the religious events of Palm Sunday begin, crafts people are busy preparing the palms that will be used during the processions… They spread colorful cloths over stones in the town square on which they place intricately woven palm fronds. Some are tiny crosses or roses; others resemble baskets; still others are flights of fancy with herbs and flowers woven into the design. Occasionally there are small religious pictures cut from a magazine pasted onto the piece.
