Our session on the 25th of April will be at 12 pm GMT.
Have you ever wondered why is Easter celebrated on a different day each year?
The exact Easter day actually depends on the moon. The holiday is set to be the first Sunday after the Paschal full moon which is the first full moon in spring. Easter is celebrating Christ's return from the grave. And the reason why we follow this system is that Christ’s death happened after the Jewish holiday. Jewish calendars follow solar and lunar cycles so the dates fluctuate every year.
In our session, we will be talking about the traditions during Easter time, "hunting for treasures" - the knowledge and customs from different countries.

We have connected over 500 kids from the UK with children from other parts of the world through writing letters to their Pen Buddies in Cambodia, Hong Kong, China, Malaysia, Russia, Namibia & Vietnam.
Our aim is to sustain this valuable project with great support from public donation and corporate sponsorship. You can now also buy a t-shirt from our SHOP TO SUPPORT. All t-shirts are made from certified organic cotton, without being tested on animals and printed in the UK with low waste printing tech. They are made in a renewable energy powered factory audited for a wide range of social and sustainability criteria.
