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:
