This annual feast falls on the Sunday before Easter and commemorates the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem in the days before his Passion, an event described in the Gospels.
 
All the parishes in Malta and Gozo on Palm Sunday bless the palm leaves and the olive leaves, some have parades. The parishes that have the statues of Good Friday bless the olive tree they put on the statues of "Jesus prays in the Olive Garden" and the "Betrayal of Judas" . Many Maltese take a small olive branch to their homes because it is a sacramental..
