Most of the spring holiday - Easter - usually celebrated in April, and the last Sunday before it is Palm Sunday, Verbinės in many European countries, known as Palm Sunday. This is Christ's decent to enter Jerusalem before suffering memory. The Gospel says that the highest respect for the Jewish Messiah is paving the crowd to him under the feet of palm branches from the shoot: "Honor to those who came on behalf of the Lord!" Yet our age at the beginning of the Eastern Highland churches had a custom of the day, in a procession around the church after the priest bearing the Sacrament Švenčiausiąjį feet lay osier twigs.
According to Catholic church liturgy palm blessing started in early V century. For Lithuanians herbs - the revival of vegetation, the natural symbol of life force. Other indoeuropean culture people also rely on the spring, spray blessing springing buds.
