In Pictures: Egyptians Celebrate Palm Sunday
Yesterday, Christians all over Egypt celebrated the entry of Christ into Jerusalem. The entry on a donkey was met with branches of palms held by villagers; the palms used on this occasion are a symbol of his entry and victory.
This tradition is held every year during the holy week which marks the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus. The holiday is one of the most important in Christianity and it’s celebrated by Egyptians throughout the country.
