We learned about the festival of Michaelmas and why it is celebrated.
Michaelmas is a Christian festival, also honoured by Roman Catholics, which is held annually on the 29th September. A basilica in Rome was named in honour of Michael on the 30th of September, but all celebrations began on the 29th of September. This religious event, also known as the Feast of the Angels, celebrates and honours Saint Michael the Archangel who defeated Satan (the Devil) in the War in Heaven.
We worked in groups to create collaborative pieces of art based around Michaelmas.
