Care Sunday, care away,
Palm Sunday and Easter-day.
Care-Sunday is the Sabbath next before Palm Sunday, and the second
before Easter. Etymologists differ respecting the origin of the term. It
is also called Carling-Sunday, and hence the Nottinghamshire couplet:
Tid, Mid, Misera,
Carling, Palm, Paste-egg day.
