Today, in the afternoon, we created our Christingles for the Christingle Service which takes place tomorrow morning. First we had to take our orange – which represents the world – and glue on a ribbon which represents Jesus’ blood and the sacrifice he made for us. Secondly, we had to get four cocktail sticks and put sweets and raisins on them. We then stuck them in the orange in a cross shape. After this, we added tin foil on the top which represents the star that led Mary to Bethlehem. Finally we added a candle to the orange which represents Jesus’ body. When we light the candle it means God is the light of the world.
