This coming Sunday is Easter Sunday and is a very special day for Christians all over the world. The week before Easter Sunday is the Holy Week and is also the last week of Lent. Most Christians observe the 40 days fasting and prayer to observe a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter.
I can still remember those days when my kids were in Sunday school and the Sunday school teachers will be busy at this time preparing programmes for the children the Sundays prior to Easter Sunday. There will be games like hunting of Easter eggs in their school room or church’s compound. There will also be arts and crafts relating to Easter. Most likely, they will be busy preparing for a presentation by the children for the adults during the Easter Sunday worship service. Usually, the Sunday school hall will be decorated with a backdrop featuring the meaning of Easter. I remembered some of the lovely backdrops used e.g. the Easter spring backdrops for photography for both teachers and children. My children were there together with their friends holding and showing off their arts and crafts as they posed for the photos.
Those days, the backdrop were made of vinyl material. If the vinyl backdrop is not kept with care, there will be ceases and wrinkles and this will spoil the backdrop. The new and latest backdrops are made of cotton cloths and these are collapsible, washable and can be ironed to remove ceases or wrinkles.
There are other backdrops which I can still remember very clearly such as the Christmas backdrops for photography. I noticed that some are still in use or recycled with some noticeable wrinkles on them but many have been replaced with the Cotton cloth backdrops available nowadays.
