A little boy was sick on Palm Sunday and stayed home from church with his mother. His father returned from church holding a palm branch. The little boy was curious and asked, “Why do you have that palm branch, dad?” “You see, when Jesus came into town, everyone waved palm branches to honor him, so we got palm branches today.” The little boy replied, “Really?, No way! The one Sunday I miss is the Sunday that Jesus shows up.”
When Jesus made his triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the crowds were going wild.
