The exact date of the Palm Sunday holiday can change but it always falls on the Sunday right before Easter. As a celebration of Jesus entering into Jerusalem Palm Sunday is celebrated by Christians everywhere. The holiday is named Palm Sunday because the people who followed Jesus as he went into Jerusalem carried palm leaves with them. If palm leaves can not be found then the leaves of another tree may be substituted. Exactly one week after Jesus went into Jerusalem he was resurrected from the tomb after being crucified on the cross. It is common to attend church on Palm Sunday o celebrate the holiday.
