Palm Branches


send this as a free egreeting free

In some towns in the north of England and parts of Scotland there is an old tradition among Catholics and possibly Anglicans, of referring to Passion Sunday as Carling Sunday...A ship carrying food to help relieve the famine ran aground off the coast and broke up. A few days later its cargo of peas washed ashore and crowds flocked to the beach to recover them To commemorate the event people began the annual custom of serving peas soaked in salt water....read more here...

April Fool 2011


...References to April Fool’s Day can be found as early as the 1500s...The puzzle that April Fool’s Day presents to cultural historians is that it was only during the eighteenth century that detailed references to it (and curiosity about it) began to appear...Shakespeare, writing in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, made no mention of April Fool’s Day, despite being, as Charles Dickens Jr. put it, a writer who “delights in fools in general.”...Many theories have been put forward about how the tradition began.
