It is marked Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. In Moldova the holiday is called “Duminica Floriilor” or “Flowers’ Day.”
This Day is one of the Twelve Great Feasts of the year and marks the beginning of the Holy Week. During this week a liturgical service will be made every day until Easter. The Christians are supposed to fasten until the Great Holiday.
