In the past 3 years Christians around the world have not been enjoying the Palm Sunday day as a result of Covid 19 pandemic. Today many christians have enjoyed the day together in physical gatherings. This day Christians throughout the world celebrate the day Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem days before his crucifixion.
Crowds left palm fronds and clothing in his path as a sign of praise and respect. Palm Sunday is the last Sunday of Lent and first day of Holy Week in Christian churches. It falls on the Sunday before Easter and is always a movable feast. The Palm Sunday day is celebrated in all major Christian churches, including Roman Catholic and Protestant. In Orthodox churches, which follow the Julian calender, Palm Sunday is celebrated later.
The day marks Jesus' monumental arrival in Jerusalem, the start of the march to his death on a wooden cross. It's also known as Passion Sunday in honor of his suffering and death before his resurrection
