Christians around the world celebrate the beginning of Holy Week with Palm Sunday; a day that commemorates when Jesus entered Jerusalem and was greeted by followers waving palms as described in the Christian Gospel of John.

They took palm branches and went out to meet him, shouting, "Hosanna!" "Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!" (John 12:12-13)
