What is Christingle?
Christingle is a joyful celebration that brings families and communities together to share the light of Jesus and spread a message of hope.
Christingle celebrations are named after the Christingles that are lit during the ceremony. Christingles are oranges wrapped in red tape, decorated with sweets, with a candle on the top.
The lit candle creates a warm, magical glow symbolising the light of Christ and bringing hope to people living in darkness.
Christingles are homemade using oranges and a few other bits.
Each element of a Christingle has a special meaning and helps to tell the Christian story.
