A po swieceniu i procesji, te palmy zabiera sie do domu. Umieszczone na oknie czy drzwiach, bede odstraszaly zlego ducha. Sa one rowniez piekna dekoracja domu.
Today is Palm Sunday (in Cebuano: Domingo sa Lukay). I spent this day in Davao. I saw so many beautiful palms made by local people to commemorate the entry of Jesus to Jerusalem. I like the style of the blessing of the palms here. People use the leaves of the coconuts palms and shape them into intricately woven designs (cross, star, flower). They are very creative in it.
After blessing, during the mass, people bring the palms to the houses and place on the doors or windows to ward off evil spirit. It is nice decoration of the house throughout the entire year.
