Learn Late Cornish Bit by Bit 64 (A Bit About Easter)

Now that we are coming up to Easter, here is some vocabulary.

A Bit About Easter

  We have already seen some relevant vocabulary in our St Day Carol, e.g.:

 … Jesus a verwis e’n grows                   … Jesus who died on the cross
… Jesus a veu gorrys en vow                … Jesus who was put in a cave
… Jesus a dhasorhas e’n nos                … Jesus who rose again in the night
The important days on the calendar are:

De Gwener an Grows                    
                                    Good Friday (literally Friday of the Cross)
Pask                           Easter
Corawys                    Lent
Ma Pask o toas.       Easter is coming.
