today’s holiday: White Sunday

White Sunday

Children are honored on this special day celebrated in Christian churches of both American Samoa and the country of Samoa. Each child dresses in white and wears a crown of white frangipani blossoms. They line up and walk to church, carrying banners and singing hymns, while their parents wait for them inside. The children present short dramatizations of Bible stories, such as the good Samaritan, Noah’s ark, and the prodigal son.
