Palm Sunday Celebration in Iloilo City 2024 [PHOTOBLOG]

Palm Sunday is a Christian holiday that falls on the Sunday before Easter. It marks the beginning of Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter Sunday, which commemorates the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ according to Christian belief.

According to the accounts, Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey while crowds of people greeted him by waving palm branches and spreading them on the road in front of him. This event is often referred to as the “Triumphal Entry.”

In many Christian traditions, Palm Sunday is celebrated with special church services where palm branches are blessed and distributed to the congregation. The palms are often woven into crosses or other shapes as symbols of peace and victory. The day is marked by songs, prayers, and readings from the Bible recounting Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem and the events leading up to his crucifixion.
