Palm Sunday
Palm Sunday is the Sunday at the start of the week called Holy Week in the Christian church year. It culminates in Good Friday, which commemorates Jesus' crucifixion, and Easter, which commemorates Jesus' resurrection. Palm Sunday recalls Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem when the crowds greeting him waved palm branches (John 12:13). In the Mediterranean world of Jesus' day palms symbolized triumph and victory.
