The Pit Post | Palm

  The Pit Post | Palm

Sunday, a Christian holy day, falls on the Sunday before Easter.  That was yesterday. In a Christian country it is an important day because it commemorates the beginning of Holy Week.  In a papist country, Italy #1 in that category, it is obligatory to observe the day, which means clipping olive branches (not a lot of palms in Tuscany) and taking them to church to be blessed.

Italians who rarely go to church, go on Palm Sunday.  It is the third most attended church day next to Easter Sunday and Christmas.

Which means it is a dangerous day to be out on the roads cycling.  Spring is a breathtakingly beautiful time here.  Spring officially and literally began here on March 20th. So yesterday was idyllic.  And the cyclists, sinners all, were skipping church to ride.
