Palm Sunday is celebrated by Christians as the day that Christ rode into Jerusalem on a donkey and praises were sung to him by everyone. Palm branches were placed on the path to make the ride easier and songs of Hosannas were sung loudly by the crowds of worshippers. The celebrations would be short lived and within the week Christ would be crucified, only to rise from the dead to finish teaching his disciples before his final ascension to heaven, leaving with a promise that he would return.
The teachings of “love your neighbour as yourself” would linger on as today is also Neighbour Day. A kind gesture or word to celebrate the wonderful neighbours we have.
In a world where everything is in its place and a there is place for everything, weeds remind us of the uncontrollable and wild treasures. After all weeds are just plants growing somewhere we don’t want them to. So celebrate the determination of weeds on Weed Appreciation Day as you clear the garden for the approaching new growing season.
