The Ashes...

So tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. I always wondered where they got all those ashes, a couple years ago someone finally told, they burn the palm branches from the previous years Palm Sunday service. Maybe i'm stupid and everybody else in the world knew that but i didn't. My pastor just posted a little youtube video of his burning action... thought i would share.

I guess now the question is, where we mid-westerns get palm tree branches?
