Thanks for the teachers for letting us make christingles it was a lot of fun and us older ones had to teach the younger ones to make them if they have not made them before and we had to teach them what each thing on the christingles represent. The orange represents the world God made the red ribbon around the christingle represents the blood of Jesus when he died on the cross for us and the candle represents that Jesus is the light of the world and the dried fruit and sweets on cocktail sticks pushed into the orange representing the fruits of the earth and the four seasons and north east south west.
On the 19th December 2018 the whole school made Christingle’s, we talked about the meaning of the orange, the candle, the foil, the sticks, the fruits and the red ribbon.
Here are the meanings:
Candle-Jesus is the light of the world
Foil-Reflect the light of Jesus
Sticks-North, East, South and West
Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring
Fruit-The fruits of the world
Ribbon-The pain and blood of Jesus.
Once we had gone through that you had to sit down with your partner and start, my partner was Mason, it was pretty simple for us year 6’s because we have done it for 7 years but it was still really fun.
How to make a Christingle:
. Put red ribbon around your Christingle
. Put the foil inside the orange and place the candle inside
. Take four sticks and put them around the Christingle
. Put 4 sweets/dried fruit on each stick
And that’s how you make a Christingle!
Thank you so much
And Mrs Evans for setting up the hall and making the morning really fun!
