At rest under the shade of a tree, two ‘hosana’ choir girls were a bit surprise and shy with the attention they’re getting from a shutterbug (me). These charming hosana angels still make the Sunday surroundings so bright even after the hectic Palm Sunday activities–singing ‘hosana’ songs with a choir composed of young girls and boys around the Poblacions at early dawn. The singing chores seemed a breeze judging at their fresh morning faces. They were like moving dainty white flowers in the church grounds.
Domingo de Ramos or Palm Sunday is simply referred to as ‘Hosana’ in Bulusan.
