Why are Palms handed out at Church?  What happens to the Palms after church services?

This year, Palm Sunday falls on April 9, which is the first day of the Holy Week.
The name of the day, Palm Sunday, is derived from the tradition of using palm fronds in reenacting Jesus Christ's arrival in the Holy City. According to the Mirror, palm branches are known for being a sign of peace and were thrown at Jesus' feet when he entered Jerusalem.
In keeping with the tradition, palms are carried in a procession into church during Palm Sunday Mass. These palms are later burned and the ashes are used on Ash Wednesday.
