The Christ’s ressurection celebrated on Easter Sunday. Catholic believers celebrates the Easter Sunday yesterday. It is the end of Lent and marks the end of Holy Week. There are activities in the church started on Palm Sunday. The Easter Sunday activities in our church started with the procession, the encounter (sugat) of Mother Mary and Jesus Christ, with angels singing throwing petals of flowers and then holy mass after. I must say that this is the most festive events in the Catholic church and other christian believers. For Christians, Easter is the most important day of the year.
The celebration in our church yesterday starts at 4:00 in the morning. We always attend Easter mass, so we woke up early get the kids ready because the kids are looking forward to see the angels singing during the encounter of Jesus and Mary after three days of being dead. The kids enjoy watching the angels singing and amazed on one angel hanging on the ceiling. It brings back the days when me and I older sister were one of the angels. Though I am not so aware of what is happening during that time, the pictures of me and my sister wearing white dress with wings made me understand. I so wish my nieces and nephews will be one of the angels in Easter Sunday celebration.
What is Palm Sunday? This is the question that my niece asked me yesterday at the church. I am shocked because I am surprised and I do not know how to explain it to her. I end up asking myself the same question. My bad, I have attended this celebration at the church but does not have enough knowledge of what it is all about. I felt guilty of this attitude of mine. I told myself to do a research when I get home from church. I have to know so that when my niece asked me again, I know what to tell her and how to explain it to her.
Anyways, Palm Sunday is the week before Jesus death and resurrection. This is the day of His victorious entry in Jerusalem. This is also called the Passion Sunday, the beginning of the Holy Week. The Catholic and other Christians commemorate this event by doing a procession with people carrying palms. This is one of the important events of the faithful. Yesterday, I attended this celebration at the church with the family and we brought palms to have it blessed by the priest. I am happy that I get to attend because I missed it last year.
By the way, I already answered the question of my niece and I felt relieved. Thank you niece for the knowledgeable question.
One segment in the local show that I am currently watching is called Music Hero. This is a contest for the kids ages 19 years old and below who knows how to play a music instruments. One particular instrument that I am so inpired to try is the wind instruments. The sounds that comes out is very relaxing and entertaining. I guess I have to check the double reed instruments in stock at Musicians Friend and find the perfect wind instrument for me. I am really inspired to try it after watching the show.
I was at the mall last Tuesday for the moving up ceremony of my preschooler nephew. After the ceremony, the sister treats us at our favorite fast food chain. And we went on strolling around the mall and go window shopping after we are done eating. Even though it is very tiring, it is fine with one because the kids are enjoying it and having fun at the mall. While at the mall, the lady approaches us and asked us if we would like to enroll the kids for bowling workshop this summer. There is no registration fee, we just have to show proof of purchase with the certain amount they need for registration. It is a good idea I think.
The sister and I decided to register the kids for this bowling summer workshop but before doing it, we asked the kids first if they want to try the bowling workshop. And they all smiled. The niece and nephews are so excited for the workshop. We already have the form needed for the workshop. We just have to fill it up and bring it back to them with the kids on the first day of workshop. This would be a new experience of the kids this summer. It is their first time. And I wish that they will learn and will enjoy their summer workshop. Good luck kids!
