Christians in Cameroon today joined other Christians the world over to celebrate Palm Sunday. The celebration is reminiscence of the triumphant entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem six days before his crucifixion.
Palm Sunday, which falls on April 9 this year, is the first day of Holy Week and the most solemn time in the Christian calendar. Palm Sunday marks the moment when the Son of God entered Jerusalem in triumph riding on the back of a donkey while crowds, who would later call for him to be killed, paid homage to him.
The day is marked by holy mass and prayers in churches. During Palm Sunday Mass, palms are distributed to parishioners who carry them in a ritual procession into church. The palms are blessed with holy water. People are now given small crosses, made of palms, to take home with them.

Later these are burnt to create the ashes that are put on people's heads on Ash Wednesday (just before Lent starts) the following year. In parts of the world where palm trees don't grow, flowers or olive branches are used instead.

Palm Sunday is followed by Maundy Thursday on April 13, Good Friday on April 14, Easter Sunday on April 16 and Easter Monday on April 17. The date of Easter changes each year because it is based on the Lunar calendar.
