Easter Day Etchings 

 

(Sunday School teachers/youth workers may be interested in an Easter word search created for us by Miss Lorna Webb - link on our activities page) 

Easter Day is always a special day in every church in the world because it celebrates the fact that Jesus rose from the dead.  This is celebrated in many different ways.  Eggs are often used,, both chocolate and real eggs as an egg is a symbol of new life.  Eggs can even be painted in some countries.  In St. Hilary's the children always enjoy Easter Day.  Find out how the Easter preparations in St. Hilary's went below......................

Eric notices that Miss Enid must be rather cold this morning because she has her lovely warm Winter hat on. He thinks that, as it IS Easter, he would offer to turn it into an Easter bonnet.......with a Easter lily of course!

Clever Eric.......doesn't the hat look great with a lily in it!.

Tinker loves the lily in the hat too and is trying to reach it.

Who is this new "duck on the block"? It is Gloria! She flew in this Easter Sunday morning after hearing how sad Eric has been.

Gloria is Esme's auntie and she is now on her own.  When Esme told her how lonely Ernest's father was she agreed to "fly in" for a while and join the congregation in St. Hilary's.

Gracie just so pleased to see how happy Eric is looking.  GP, her pet, is happy for him too!

Eric is clearly VERY impressed with Gloria  and is offering her an Easter lily!

Adele brings some Easter eggs to church which her family have bought.  She tells the vicar that her family want them to be given to children in the parish who may not get one this year.

Next
Alice volunteers to light the Paschal candle.  The Paschal candle is lit at every service from Easter Day up until Ascension Day.

She is practising here because she wants to be sure she can reach when the time comes.

Meanwhile back in Aunt Sal's Tearooms Esme is enjoying sitting on some CHOCOLATE eggs....WHAT is that about? 

Priscilla Jane is asking Esme what she is doing.  Esme tries to explain that she was feeling a little bit broody.  However she knows that she and Ernest don't want to have any more little ducklings at the moment but still fancies a quiet time sitting on some eggs.  She remembers how she enjoyed finding a nice quiet place next to the village pond away from the noisy geese, morehens and coots where she could have her nest.  It was SO quiet and peaceful sitting on her eggs away from all the hustle and bustle of pond life.

So she is now enjoying sitting on some of the eggs that will be part of the children's Easter egg hunt in Aunt Sal's Tearooms this afternoon. 

See how careful she is not to melt the chocolate by sitting on them ever so gently............
