This moveable feast of Christians is celebrated to commemorate the arrival of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem. It is a crucial event which is mentioned in all the four canonical Gospels.
Many Christian denominations include PalmSunday worship services which consist of a march of the faithful carrying palms. The palm branches represent the scattered crowd when Jesus arrived in Jerusalem. It becomes difficult to collect palms in unfavorable climatic conditions. Thus, the palms have been replaced with branches of easily accessible trees. The Sunday was named after the substitute like Yew Sunday or Branch Sunday.

Then, two changes were made in the 6th and 7th century which included the ritual blessings of the palms and a morning procession in place of the evening.
