School holidays :


Good Friday -
Friday April 10, 2020

Catholic or protestant : The First Council of Nicaea (a gathering of bishops in the early days of Christianity) wanted to find a day to commemorate the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ. This commemoration had to be linked to Jewish holiday traditions, since the last supper of Christ was believed to be a Jewish Passover meal. But the Jewish calendar is based on lunar and solar cycles, so the Easter celebration had to follow the same calendar.

Le Feuillu -
Sunday May 3, 2020

Culture : Le Feuillu, aussi écrit anciennement « Folliu », « Folhiu » ou « Foeillu », est une fête qui se rattache à l'antique tradition des « quêtes de mai » répandues dans toute l'Europe. Elle peut également être rapprochée de la « Fête du Fou » (le fou étant dérivé de fagus, hêtre) ainsi qu'à celle des « Maïentzets » ou encore à celle de l'arbre de mai. Cette fête aurait été à l'origine un rite paysan de type païen, probablement d'origine celtique et dont le but est de célébrer le retour du printemps. Au XVIe siècle, Calvin la fit interdire dans les communes genevoises. [Wikipedia]
