Best answer:

Holy Week or Senior Week begins with Palm Sunday and ends with Easter Sunday. This celebration is the right time to reflect on our actions as people and as citizens.

Palm Sunday begins and ends with the celebration of Easter Sunday. The date of the celebration is variable (between March and April according to the year) since it depends on the lunar calendar. Holy Week is preceded by Lent, which ends in the Passion Week where the Eucharist is celebrated on Holy Thursday, the Crucifixion of Jesus is commemorated on Good Friday and the Resurrection in the Easter Vigil during the night of Holy Saturday to Sunday Resurrection

During the Holy Week numerous samples of popular religiosity take place throughout the world, highlighting the processions and representations of the Passion.
