  • It is actually Palm Sunday, palm fronds are distributed. Psalm is pronounced Salm.

  • Ostara? The spring equinox, also known as Easter. Isn't Psalm Sunday the week before Easter? All you straightlaced Christians gonna howl at this but Ostara was a day of worship to fertility deities long before your God was born. Note eggs, chicks, bunnies... try and deny that they are symbols of fertility even now.

  • As far as I know no we don't have the "SCOPE" on Palm Sunday... It is from that day to Easter that Christians celebrate Christ's cruxifction and rebirth
    Ostara/Ostra -- is celebrated by Pagans on the Spring Equinox or the first day of Spring between March 19-21 it can vary ...
    And before it's asked by OP yes most of us do celebrate Easter as a simple fun tradional day of family gatherings and lots of food...

  • Ostara and Easter are two separate holidays that have nothing to do with each other (short of traditions and symbols). They aren't even celebrated on the same day, as far as I know . . . Does Ostara fall on Palm Sunday this year? Why are you so worried about it anyway?

  • Does Ostara fall on Palm Sunday this year?

    No. Ostara was on March 21- Northern Hemisphere and Palm Sunday is April 3-Western and April 12- Eastern this year. Easter is on April 12-Western and April 19-Eastern.
