Palm Sunday is God's way...

Palm Sunday (the start of holy week) is the start of God's ways to save people from sins.

Christians celebrate Palm Sunday as the entry of Jesus Christ to Jerusalem – a week before His death on the cross and resurrection. Palm Sunday, also known as “Passion Sunday” is the first day or beginning of Holy Week.

You might ask why it was named as “Palm Sunday”; this was because when Jesus entered Jerusalem, people welcomed him by waving palm branches. From then on, the religious tradition has been handed from generation to generations – until at present time…

Every Palm Sunday, religious people (like Priests in Roman Catholic) bless the palms of believers with prayers and holy water, to recall Christ's sufferings, death and resurrection to save all mankind from sins.
