Yesterdayr, Father Andrew came into school and our Reception Class celebrated Christingle. We all made a Christingle orange.
Father Andrew taught us that Christingles are made up of different parts,
each one being there to remind us of something.
• The orange represents the world.
• The candle reminds Christians of Jesus who they believe to be the
light of the world.
• The red ribbon goes all round the 'world' and being the colour of
blood, reminds Christians that Jesus died.
• The four cocktail sticks could have either of two meanings; the four
seasons or the four corners of the world.
• The sweets (or sometimes dried fruit) remind Christians of God's
gifts to the world including kindness and love.
• The foil is only there to catch waxy drips from the candle.
We lite our candles and said a prayer at the end.
Thank you to all the parents that came along to join in.
