Palm Sunday for the year 2022 is celebrated/ observed on Sunday, April 10th.

Palm Sunday which is the Sunday before Easter Sunday and the start of Holy Week for Christians is a feast day commemorating Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem on a Donkey (symbolizing peace versus a horse which symbolized war).

The name Palm Sunday comes from the palm branches the crowd scattered on the ground in front of Jesus as he rode into Jerusalem. Many churches today will celebrate the day with other tree branches (Yew, Willow, Olive, and Box) as many climates are unable to grow the Palm tree.

Sunday, April 10th is day number 100 of the 2022 calendar year with 2 years, 9 months, 17 days until Palm Sunday 2022.
