Palm Sunday- Welcome Jesus into your heart!
Palm Sunday is celebrated the Sunday before Easter, this year it falls on April 2nd (this would be a good time to start preparing for the Easter Bunny visits), Palm Sunday is the final Sunday in Lent and marks the first day in Holy Week. The biblical reminder that Jesus entered into Jerusalem riding on a donkey and was welcomed by the city just days before Judas betrays him and ultimately ending with him being crucified for our sins before rising again. Jesus was welcomed as the Messiah on the day of Palm Sunday and was greeted with many in the crowd waving and laying palm branches before him.
Christians all over the world observe this well known Sunday by having the congregation wave palm branches (willow or olive being 2 alternatives when palm is not to be found). At the end of Palm Sunday some may take the palms home but in most cases the branches are blessed, burned and used the following year on Ash Wednesday.
