  • PÂQUES EN FRANCE

Easter in France Easter in France Presentation Transcript

  • PÂQUES
  • In France, Easter is known as Pâques. It comes in Spring(Printemps) and is celebrated in much the same way as we celebrate it here in New Zealand.
  • One difference is that when the church bells stop ringing on theThursday before Easter, children are told that they have gone to Rome to be blessed by the Pope.
  • When the bells ring out again on Easter Sunday morning, the childrenare told that they have flown back, dropping chocolate eggs and other chocolate treats in their gardens.
  • At Easter time, the shops are full of chocolate goodies, including chocolate chickens, rabbits, eggs and bells.
  • This bell might just be big enough for the whole Junior School!
  • People send Easter cards to friends and relatives.
  • After church on Easter Sunday, families sit down to a traditional dinner of roast lamb.
  • Or maybe you would prefer this table de Pâques!
  • Some towns organise an Easter egg hunt called a Chasse aux œufs
  • Quelle jolie chasse!
