1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Palms, Blessed
A sacramental of the Church, blessed and distributed to the faithful on Palm Sunday, to bring to mind the triumphal entry of Our Lord into Jerusalem, when He was met by a multi- tude bearing palms. Their use originated in the "miracle plays" of the early Middle Ages, and they are mentioned by the Venerable Bede, c700 The most suitable palm is the Oriental date-palm, when procurable. In the United States the southern palmetto is largely used, but any other kind of branches may be used if some species of palm cannot be obtained. The palms are blessed before the principal Mass on Palm Sunday, with a long blessing which includes a beautiful Preface. They are then distributed to the people, who should hold them during the reading of the Passion of Our Lord, and they should be preserved reverently at home.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Palms
The date palm (Phoenix dactylifera ) was among the earliest cultivated trees. Five thousand-year-old inscriptions from Mesopotamia give instruction for their cultivation. Palms are characteristic of oases and watered places (Exodus 15:27 ; Numbers 33:9 ). The fruit of the date palm is highly valued by desert travelers since it may be consumed fresh or else dried or made into cakes for a portable and easily storable food. Jericho was known as the city of palms (Deuteronomy 34:3 ; Judges 1:16 ; Judges 3:13 ). The judge Deborah rendered her decisions under a palm bearing her name (Judges 4:5 ). The palm was a symbol of both beauty (Song of Song of Solomon 7:7 ) and prosperity (Psalm 92:12 ). Thus, images of palms were used in the decoration of the Temple (1Kings 6:29,1 Kings 6:35 ; 1 Kings 7:36 ) and were part of Ezekiel's vision of the new Temple (Ezekiel 40:16 ,Ezekiel 40:16,40:22 ,Ezekiel 40:22,40:26 ). Palms were used in the construction of the booths for the festival of booths (Leviticus 23:40 ; Nehemiah 8:15 ). In John 12:13 , the crowd used palm branches to welcome Jesus to Jerusalem.
