How Do You Celebrate Palm Sunday?

Many share that they like Palm Sunday because of the idea of making a path with the palms.

The palm path has a double meaning: The leaves symbolize the believer’s path they are laying in pursuit of their aspirations and goals, they also represent the idea of laying out the path for someone special to return.

In this case, it would be celebrating Jesus’ return to Jerusalem and the symbolic return of the believer’s conviction.

Since people also enjoy gathering together during this time, they creat crafts out of the palm leaves.

People adorn the leaves into hats, handbags,  crosses, bowls, animal shapes, and other things.

People make palm crafts together as an act of unison and togetherness.

The palm leaves are blessed and then burned into ash.

Some people take the ash and have it smeared on their faces.

The Palm Sunday celebration is an old tradition that remains popular.
