This week kids learnt about the importance of Christian festivals. It is important to have a basic knowledge of the religious background and why the festivals are continued till today. We explored together about the auspicious days in Christianity such as Good Friday, Maundy Thursday and the significance Palm Sunday.
Holy week commemorates the washing of the feet of the disciples by Jesus, last supper of Jesus with the Apostles and Triumphal entry of Jesus to Jerusalem. The celebration of Palm Sunday holds great significance for Christians as it marks the beginning of the solemn and sacred journey of Holy Week, leading to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It serves as a reminder of Jesus’ love, sacrifice, and his ultimate victory over sin and death.
Our kids had greater understanding on the religious background and they now know the reason for the celebration of Christian festivals.
