Here are only four of the myriad designs of palaspas available outside parishes today, Palm Sunday.

I only regret I wasn't able to avail the other designs because of time constraints and the question of proximity of the palaspas sellers. The ones shown above are the most popular and common variety of those available almost everywhere (some of the great testaments to the creativity of the Filipino). There were other palm fronds the Roman Catholic faithful where lugging about but I have no idea where they bought it.

These are the vendors selling them fronds outside the local parish church. They sell these things for ten pesos a pop. Not bad a deal actually.
