Palm Sunday 2017

Sunday, April 9 Entry of Christ into Jerusalem (1320) by Pietro Lorenzetti

Palm Sunday (also Passion Sunday) is in the Christian tradition a holiday commemorating Jesus Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem before his suffering and death on the cross. In many Christian churches it is associated with the blessing and procession of palms or twigs (sometimes decorated with flowers) from local trees. This tradition corresponds to the palm branches the crowd scattered in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem.

Palm Sunday is the first day of Holy Week which also includes Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. Of course, the date of the Palm Sunday depends on the date of Easter Sunday and hence it varies each year.
