Each flower is attached by hand using string, without any glue. Wooden stick is hand carved.

Perfect to display it in a vase, hanging on a wall or lay it against a wall by a fireplace.

One week before Easter, on Sunday Palm, the palms are blessed in the church. Tradition says that they should be kept for the whole year to protect the house from all evil.

Other superstitions say that after you’re back from the church you should walk around your house 3 times carrying the Easter palm before entering the house to have a good year; gently slap your cows with the easter palm so they will give you lots of milk in return. Most importantly is not to forget to swallow a catkin from your easter palm as it will protect you from getting a sore throat.
