Palm sunday and butarica
One of old customs in our land (from 9th century) is to make BUTARICA for palm sunday .After the BUTARICA have been blessed in the local church they are brought home for decoration.The roots for this old custom are in pagan times when people believed that certain plants may prevent illnesses, bad weather, disasters, etc
BUTARICA in Ljubljana region is typical-made from colored shavings and green branches from juniper,yew,cypress and ivy.
