FRENCH EASTER CELEBRATION

ON GOOD FRIDAY AT O:00 P.M. ALL THE BELLS STOP AND THE
CHILDREN ARE TOLD THE BELLS HAVE FLOWN TO ROME. WHEN THE CHILDREN
HEAR THE BELLS ON EASTER THEY ARE TOLD THAT THE BELLS DROP
EASTER EGGS ON THEIR WAY BACK TO THE CHURCHES. THE EASTER EGG HUNT
BEGINS WHEN THE BELLS RING ON EASTER. THE BELLS TAKE THE PLACE OF
THE EASTER BUNNY.
