Happy Easter! First fire #MySundayPhoto

Christian First Fire at Easter

This is the "first fire" which is lit (at our church and many others) at dawn on Easter Sunday. 

We light our Pascal candle from the fire, then we all light little candles from the Pascal candle and bring the light back into the church which has been dark and undecorated since Good Friday. 

We arrived at church at 6am (which felt really early with the clock change) for a beautiful service followed by bacon sarnies, hot drinks, croissants and some fizz.

The fizz is because it's a very holy day for Christians. Today we celebrate our belief that Jesus rose from the dead. We eat a lot of chocolate eggs too!

Whatever you believe (or don't!) I wish you a very Happy Easter!
