What is Palm Sunday?
Palm Sunday is the first day of the year in which Christians commemorate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Palm Sunday is also known as Easter, and is celebrated worldwide on April 3rd.
The day commemorates when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey while people waved palm branches and spread their cloaks on the ground to show him honor. This event signaled that Jesus was going to be crowned king, even though he knew he was going to die soon.
The week leading up to Easter is called Holy Week, and it includes Maundy Thursday (the night before Good Friday) and Good Friday (the day Jesus died). On Easter Sunday, Christians celebrate that Jesus rose from the dead after being crucified three days earlier. This event marks redemption for all of humanity – because of what Christ did for us, we can have eternal life!
Easter is a very special time for Christians all over the world; it’s a time when we remember God’s great love for us shown through His Son’s sacrifice. I invite you to come join us as we celebrate this amazing holiday!
