Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, and is a time that marks Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem. As He rode in on a donkey, large crowds of people laid cloaks and palm branches across the road to honor Him as King. Palm Sunday kicks off Holy Week, which leads up to His crucification and rise from the dead.
Most of the crowd spread their cloaks on the road, and others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. Matthew 21:8
