Κυριακή των Βαΐων or  Palm Sunday, the start of Holy Week that culminates on Easter Sunday, commemorates the day Christians believe Jesus entered Jerusalem and was welcomed as the messiah, only to be crucified five days later.

During the first centuries of Christianity, the feast of remembrance that took place along with the resurrection of Lazarus. Later the second postponed by one day before, called Lazarus Saturday.
