Palaspas 2019 in Northern California

Postby Darna na Dyesebel pa » Mon Apr 15, 2019 7:05 am

    

I just want to share my experience of Palaspas in Northern California.

It so happened that I was around the Latino community yesterday and I saw people selling palaspas . It was my first time to see palaspas for a very long time .
The Latino palaspas is a small version of the Philippine palaspas . They don’t use coconut leaves/fronds . Palm leaves/ frond din pero small version and the design is different with weaving here and there . It doesn’t make loud noise and instead of a paper flower , they decorate it with small plastic religious figurines ( a crucified Christ , Virgin Mary etc ) . One piece is worth $ 10-15 .
I went to a church sa downtown kaso there’s no holy water , they covered yung mga lalagyan and they were decorating the altar in preparation for Palm Sunday .
So it forced me to go sa Palm Sunday mismo to have it blessed .

Today I went to the same church and no one was selling palaspas outside the church .
Tinanong ako kung saan ko nabili yung palaspas .
As it turned out ... ako lang ang may dalang authentic palaspas .
What they did was ...yung frond ng palm plant ...tinanggal ng isa isa yung leaf ... tapos binigyan yung mga tao ng tig 1-4 pieces each to simulate a palaspas .
Anyway ... naka tingin sa akin yung pari kasi ako lang ang may dalang authentic palaspas eh I have 2 pa .. each with praying hands na gold ( it’s plastic pero gold ang kulay na shiny ) sa middle part ... sa bottom part yung isa with crucified Christ, yung isa Virgin Mary .
Ala lang . I find it amusing .
My explanation ... kasi tayo namang pinoy we don’t go shopping when it’s Holy Week .. it’s either you go to a beach or stay sa city and attend the Holy Week masses . So maybe that’s the reason people don’t know where to buy a palaspas.
The church that I went eh originally eh Irish Catholic church na nasa downtown mismo ... pero ngayon majority ng pumupunta eh pinoy . Dati pinoy ang pari doon but now it’s a white guy . It’s a big old church and it was full .
May isang pinoy ... ang dala raw palm frond ... mukang directly hinugot lang nya sa small palm tree . No decoration whatsoever . No weaving ..no nothing.

Side note :
When it comes to religion, highly charged ang pamilya namin .
My mom is Iglesia ni Cristo , my sister a hardcore Jesus Miracle Crusade member , my brother a Mormon .
So yung palaspas na binili ko ... special yun . All of us haven’t seen a palaspas for a very long time .

Wala .
Ang Latino palaspas doesn’t make much noise .
Tsaka yung plastic decorations makes it artificial looking.
Pero dahil nga ... walang pinoy palaspas at improvised lang na tigigisang dahon lang ang gamit ng pinoys ... aba stariray yung mga palaspas ko.

The pope should go to the Philippines on a Palm Sunday so he’ll experience how Filipinos take Palm Sunday very seriously .

Tsaka ang palaspas nilalagay yan sa bintana kontra bagyo ... so all year long ang Palm Sunday decoration.
That’s uniquely pinoy .
Very festive ang atmosphere sa pinoys ang Palm Sunday.
