In RE, we learnt about the importance of the Christingle Celebration in the Christian Faith. In small groups, we made our own Christingle which is made of an orange, a lighted candle, a red ribbon and dried fruit and sweets on cocktail sticks. We found out the meaning of each part.
1. The orange is the world.
2. The red ribbon is the blood and love of Christ.
3. The lighted candle is Jesus, the Light of the World.
4. The four cocktail sticks of dried fruit and sweets are the four seasons, the fruits of the earth and God’s good gifts.
