Palm Sunday is the day of a Christian moveable feast that memorializes the entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

As mentioned in the four Gospels, it is a Christian tradition to honor this canonical event by sharing palm branches or a box of branches belonging to native trees like yew, olive, box, and willow which represents the crowds that had gathered to see Jesus Christ entering Jerusalem.

This beautiful concept behind the holiday can be easily explained to a child by narrating the life story of Jesus Christ and why this holiday came to be.

Here is a list of some of the best Palm Sunday quotes to kindle your holiday spirits.
