On Palm Sunday, Christians all through the world celebrate the day Jesus triumphantly entered Jerusalem days before his crucifixion.
Groups left palm fronds and attire in his way as an indication of commendation and regard.
Yet, a huge number of American Christians will watch Palm Sunday at home this year, as the coronavirus pandemic has constrained most US holy places to hold services online on account of stay-at-home requests.
This is what you have to think about the Sunday that launches the holiest days for the world’s Christians:
When is it celebrated?
Palm Sunday is the last Sunday of Lent and first day of Holy Week in Christian churches. It falls on the Sunday before Easter and is constantly a movable feast.
Who celebrates Palm Sunday?
It is praised in all significant Christian churches, including Roman Catholic and Protestant. In Orthodox houses of worship, which follow the Julian calender, Palm Sunday is praised later.
For what reason does Palm Sunday matter to Christians?
The day denotes Jesus’ grand appearance in Jerusalem, the beginning of the walk to his demise on a wooden cross. It’s otherwise called Passion Sunday in respect his suffering and demise before his revival.
How is it observed?
Palm Sunday is frequently celebrated with parades and distribution of blessed palm leaves.
In certain churches, the palms are spared and consumed into remains to be utilized on Ash Wednesday of the following year. A few Christians fold the palm fronds into crosses and keep them in their homes.
