Palm Sunday, the final Sunday before Easter Sunday, marks the beginning of Holy Week. Christian churches distribute palms on Palm Sunday to commemorate Christ's triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, when palm branches were placed in His path, before His arrest and Crucifixion on Good Friday.
This day marks the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem and occurs one week before Easter. His arrival was greeted with people holding palm branches to honor Him. Christians attend worship on this day and, in some churches, palm branches are used during the service.
