In this super special broadcast, Andy B and Jo Jo take us through the Christingle. They look at the history of the Christingle, and the humble orange that makes up the most important part.
Jo Jo brings history alive as she takes us through what each of the elements of a Christingle mean.
Andy B teams up with Jo Jo to show us how to actually make a Christingle, using objects and items that should be fairly easy to find in your home!
For every Christingle Orange that you wish to make you will need:
- a large orange
- red electrical tape or similar (we'll be using a red ribbon we saved from a birthday cake)
- 4 cocktail sticks (plus a few spare in case you break one or two)
- dolly mixture (or soft fruit, or anything soft enough to push a cocktail stick through!)
- a small/thin candle (we'll be using a birthday candle because it comes with it's own mount and spike)
We also share a video made by the Bible Society, and used with permission, which takes a rather apt, 2020, Covid-19 style approach to the 12 days of Christmas.
There are two great Videos you can also watch which we think are fabulous and can highly recommend:
