Easter Traditions in Spain

Palm Sunday

On Palm Sunday the people in Spain go to mass in the morning. Children carry palm leaves. Boys carry simple palm branches and girls carry simple palm branches that have been decorated. They often have sweets, tinsel or other decorations on their branches.

Ash Wednesday

On Ash Wednesday the people in Spain go to church and it’s the first day of the penitential season of Lent. They are placing ash on the foreheads as a sign of penitence. In the Roman Catholic Church they take the ash from burned palm branches. The priest places the ash on the foreheads of the officiating priests, the clergy and the congregation.

Lent

Lent is a period of penitence traditional observed by Christians. The 40–period begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on the day before Easter Sunday.
