February

“— — Then came cold February, sitting
In an old waggon, for he could not ride,
Drawne of two fishes, for the season fitting,
Which through the flood before did softly slyde
And swim away; yet had he by his side
His plough and harnesse fit to till the ground,
And tooles to prune the trees before the pride
Of hasting prime did make them burgeon round.   Spenser.” (p. 195) [more...] [$]

Palm Sunday Procession

Palm Sunday
This is the first Sunday before Easter, and is sometimes called Passiom Sunday. It is denominated Palm Sunday, because on this day the Roman catholic church ordains boughs or branches of palm trees to be carried in procession, in imitation of those strewed before Christ when he rode into Jerusalem. In this monkish procession the host was carried upon an ass, branches and flowers were strewed on the road, and others were hung up. The palms were consecrated [...]Ash Wednesday in the following year, as before-mentioned (see p. 261) on that day.” (p. 391) [more...] [$]

[picture: March]

March

“—Sturdy March with brows full sternly bent
  And armed strongly, rode upon a ram,
  The same which over Hellespontus swam;
Yet in his hand a spade he also hent,
  And in a bag all sorts of weeds ysame,
Which on the earth he strewed as he went,
And fill’d her womb with fruitfull hope of nourishment.     Spenser.” (p. 311) [more...] [$]
