23 was the work of the Bells

It was Easter Sunday in France and, as per the tale goes for the French children, Les cloches sont passées! 

There’s no Easter bunny in France. The church bells cease to ring at midnight on Maundy Thursday as they grow wings and fly to the Vatican to be blessed by the Pope. On their way back early Easter Sunday morning, they drop off chocolate eggs for the children.  

So it was no different on my school trip. I made sure the bells passed through our château!
