April 4

He is Risen!

The season of Easter is upon us. It lasts 50 days and will end at Pentecost on Sunday May 20. The Greek Orthodox Easter is celebrated one week later on April 8th.

I hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday and celebrated with friends and family and perhaps some yummy treats, too!

There are many symbols of Easter. The students brainstormed several including:

 

 

  • eggs
  • rabbits
  • flowers
  • candles
  • crucifix

The students enjoyed a little Easter egg hunt around the classroom and a beautiful presentation of the stations of the cross the Thursday before school ended.

How do you celebrate Easter?

Do you have any special traditions in your family?

Have you ever seen these beautifully decorated eggs? Check out this video that shows how the Ukrainian Easter egg is created:
