Ortodocşii prăznuiesc, duminică, Floriile sau Duminica Stâlpărilor, cea mai importantă sărbătoare care vesteşte Paştele, rememorând intrarea lui Iisus în Ierusalim şi sărbătorindu-i, totodată, pe cei cu nume de flori.
In Romania and Moldova, Palm Sunday is known as Duminica Floriilor or simply Florii, translating Flowers' Sunday.
Romanian Orthodox are one week ahead of Easter Celebrations and this means today is Palm Sunday or Flower’s Sunday.
Since Romanians do not have palm trees we’re using willows in churches celebrating the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem. Christians are then taking these branches and adorn their homes. Occasionally they are also using lilac flowers.
Palm Sunday is also Flower’s Sunday in Romania meaning that whoever wears a flower-related name is celebrated.(communication development)
