In the Western Christian Church, Palm Sunday is the Sunday before Easter, which is the the first Sunday after the Paschal Full Moon (PFM). Palm Sunday can occur as early as March 15 or as late as April 18, and it marks the beginning of Holy Week.

In most Christian churches, this day is celebrated with a special service that includes the distribution of palm leaves blessed with holy water. Churchgoes may form a procession with the palm leaves, and in some churches it is traditional to tie them into the shape of a crucifix.

For any given year between 326 AD and 4099 AD, you can calculate the date of Palm Sunday with the Easter dating tables. You can also use the calculator on the left for dates between 1583 and 4099. See also the calculators for Good Friday and Ash Wednesday.

Computing the Date of Palm Sunday By Hand

To find the date of Palm Sunday for a given year by hand, simply calculate the date of Easter and subtract seven days (one week) from the final answer. For example, if Easter Sunday falls on April 10, then Palm Sunday falls on April 3. If Easter occurs between April 1 and April 7, then Palm Sunday occurs between March 25 and March 31 respectively.
