PALM SUNDAY CRAFTS

PALM SUNDAY CRAFTS


PALM SUNDAY


Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday falls on the Sunday before Easter every year. It is also the sixth Sunday and final day of Lent. This Christian holiday is all about peace and salvation. The day is basically observed to mark the occasion when Jesus rode on a donkey and entered Jerusalem. It is called Palm Sunday because people in Jerusalem threw palm leaves on the floor to greet Jesus.
It is also known as Branch Sunday or Passion Sunday. People head to church to pay their respects to Jesus and reflect on the sacrifices he is said to have made.

Quick Facts: –
  • While celebrating Palm Sunday, palm leaves are blessed and then collected and burned into ash.
  • The ash of the palm leaves is used in the following year’s Ash Wednesday celebration.
  • People also distribute crosses made out of palm leaves and wear them.
  • This is done because the palm leaves are considered as a symbol of goodness and victory. The liturgical color of the day is red.
  • The reason why Jesus rode a donkey is that in those times, it was common for kings or important people to arrive by a procession riding on a donkey.
  • It also fulfilled prophecy from the Old Testament about the Messiah, the saviour of Israel.
  • The donkey is a symbol of peace so riding on it showed the person has peaceful intentions.
  • Palm Sunday also marks the start of the holiest weeks in the entire Christian  calendar..

THE BAUHAUS

THE BAUHAUS


The Staatliches Bauhaus, commonly known as the Bauhaus, was a German art school, 
operational from 1919 to 1933 that combined crafts and the fine arts, and was famous for the approach to design that it publicized and taught.
The Bauhaus was founded by Walter Gropius in Weimar. The German term Bauhaus—literally "building house"—was understood as meaning "School of Building", but in spite of its name and the fact that its founder was an architect, the Bauhaus did not initially have an architecture department. Nonetheless, it was founded upon the idea of creating a Gesamtkunstwerk("'total' work of art") in which all the arts, including architecture, would eventually be brought together. The Bauhaus style later became one of the most influential currents in modern design.Modernist and art, desig architecturen, and architectural education.The Bauhaus movement had a profound influence upon subsequent developments in art, architecture, graphic design, interior design,industrial design, typography

OLD TRAFFORD


OLD TRAFFORD


Old Trafford is a football stadium in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England, and the home of Manchester United. With a capacity of 74,994, it is the largest club football stadium (and second largest football stadium overall after Wembley Stadium) in the United Kingdom, and the eleventh-largest in Europe.
Nicknamed "The Theatre of Dreams" by Bobby Charlton, Old Trafford has been United's home ground since 1910, although from 1941 to 1949 the club shared Maine Road with local rivals Manchester City as a result of Second World War bomb damage. Old Trafford underwent several expansions in the 1990s, and 2000s, including the addition of extra tiers to the North, West and East Stands, almost returning the stadium to its original capacity of 80,000

PANCAKE SONG

PANCAKE SONG


PANCAKE DAY

PANCAKE DAY

Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is a special day celebrated in many countries around the world. It is celebrated in English-speaking countries like the UK, Ireland, Australia and Canada. Shrove Tuesday is at the end of Carnival. On this day many people eat pancakes, a thin, flat cake made in a pan.
Pancake Day is always on a Tuesday in February or March. It is the day before Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent. Lent is a period of 40 days before Easter. Traditionally, during Lent, people didn’t eat rich foods like butter and eggs, so they made pancakes from these ingredients on Shrove Tuesday.

Another tradition on Pancake Day in the UK is pancake racing. People run in a race with a pancake in a pan. As they run, they have to toss the pancake (throw the pancake in the air and catch it in the pan) several times. In some pancake races people dress up in fancy dress costumes. The most famous pancake race takes place in a town called Olney, in the middle of England. People say that Olney has been celebrating pancake races since 1445!
