West Lynn Primary School

Reception Christingle

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.
