An Easter Tradition continues

The children are all rote learned that at 3.00 on Good Friday Pipecleaner Jesus is taken off the cross and laid in his tomb. The stone is rolled across to keep him safe until after the Sabbath so he can be prepared properly for burial. I remember very fondly the first year with my little reception boy. We were at the zoo when he shrieked that we had to rush home and place pipecleaner Jesus into his tomb and he would not stay any longer once he realised he had a job to do (I was a single mom that Easter as Darling Hubby was working OS and had two children at the zoo by myself - so I had to do what Sir TP wanted). Pop back on Sunday for the final chapter do you know how it ends?
