Palm Sunday is the start of the holy week, The passion, death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Palm Sunday commemorates two things, the majestic entry of Jesus to the city of Jerusalem and the condemnation of Jesus to the Cross.
Jesus enters into Jerusalem this time to fulfill his mission as the Father has sent him to. "Hosanna to the Son of David", the people triumphantly chanted as He entered the holy city. "Son of David" is one of the title used by the Jews to refer to the Messiah. However, the people have only seen him as the political Messiah so when he was brought to the court, they were been easily persuaded by the leaders to put him to death . The same people who chanted "hail to the Messiah" were the same people who cried out "crucify Him".
Beware of people who easily praises you, they are the kind of people who will put you down and crucify you.
