Презентация «British Easter» Внеклассное мероприятие, посвященное празднику Пасхи 5 классы
British Easter is the time for holidays, festivals and a time for giving chocolate Easter eggs
It is the celebration of the death and coming to life again of Jesus Christ
The word Easter is thought to come from “Eostre”, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of the dawn whose spring festival was celebrated in April
Holy Week before Easter begins with Palm Sunday. It marks the end of Lent and celebrates Jesus’ arrival
On Palm Sunday, children are given crosses made from single palm leaves.
On Maundy Thursday Christians remember the Last Supper. During the Last Supper Jesus washed his disciples’ feet. This act reminds rulers that they are here to serve their subjects.
In England the custom of washing feet has been replaced by specially minted Maundy money. Queen Victoria began the custom of giving specially minted money in leather bags
Today, the Queen attends a service in one of the many cathedrals to distribute the Maundy Money.
To celebrate the arrival of spring, Easter parades often take place on Easter Sunday afternoon, where people can wear new clothes as a sign of the changing seasons, and competitions are held to find the best Easter bonnet.
Easter Monday is a national holiday in Britain, when games and sports are played
Easter symbols are the cross, the lamb, eggs and Easter rabbits.
Eggs represent new life.
British children believe that the Easter bunny brings Easter eggs and hides them for finding on Easter morning.
Children search for the eggs left by the Easter rabbit on Easter morning. It is called the Easter Egg Hunt.
Typical British Easter cakes are hot cross buns, small round sweet cakes with a cross on top in memory of Christ's death.
