When you say Easter, many are reminded of colorful Easter eggs, chocolate bunnies and spring break. For Christians, however, the journey to Easter begins on Ash Wednesday, when they commemorate Christ's temptation and the nearness of his suffering and death in a forty-day fast. It is a time of preparation for the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the greatest holiday of the liturgical year. During Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and White Saturday, believers commemorate the events that preceded the Resurrection. From Thursday's Gloria until Saturday, the bells are silenced, and so-called flaps are used instead of bells during services until Saturday. This year's (2019)guardians will therefore have to wait until they have new successors from among the children.
