What is Palm Sunday?

Palm Sunday is celebrated the Sunday before Easter Sunday and it’s the day we celebrate Jesus’ entrance into Jerusalem one week before his resurrection. As he entered into Jerusalem a large crowd gathered and they laid down their coats and cut down palm leaves and laid them down while he road a donkey in the streets. They shouted “Hosanna!…” as they followed him. (Matthew 21:9) Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week and the remembrance of Jesus’ last days before his death and resurrection.
