WHAT IS PALM SUNDAY?
If you aren't familiar with the term Palm Sunday that is okay. Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter. It is a Christmas “moveable” feast that always occurs the Sunday before Easter so it isn't on a specific date each year.
The feast commemorates Jesus's arrival into Jerusalem and is the beginning of Holy Week.
The name Palm Sunday came from the historical accounts in the Bible of people laying palm branches at the feet of Jesus as he entered Jerusalem.
Many Christian churches celebrate and observe Palm Sunday as an important part of the Easter season.
