Christianity - Seasons and Festivals

This KS3 RE quiz takes a look at Christianity, specifically the seasons and festivals. Like many other religions, Christianity observes both holy days, also known as feasts or festivals, and fasts. Observations which continue over a period of days are known as "seasons". So, similarly to the way the year is divided into the natural seasons of spring, summer, autumn and winter, the Christian year is divided into special times and seasons. Two of the most well-known seasons are Advent and Lent, both of which are times of prayer and fasting for Christians. Advent takes place for four weeks before Christmas and Lent takes place for forty days before Easter. Easter and Christmas are both feasts - or festivals - and seasons which last more than one day, with the Christmas season being twelve days, ending with Epiphany, and Easter fifty, ending with Pentecost. Many Christians observe saints' days throughout the year, as well as celebrating the events of Jesus's life, such as his baptism.
