Ascension Day is traditionally celebrated on a Thursday, the fortieth day of Easter. This year it is 29th May. Ascension Day commemorates the bodily Ascension of Jesus into heaven. It is one of the universally celebrated feasts of the Christian church.
Now what is all this to do with fireworks you may ask. Well we at Jordans Fireworks have always been keen to have fireworks (what with them going up in to the sky) as part of the celebrations and we are not alone. St John’s Church in Notting Hill are having fireworks after a Sung Eucharist service. At St Chad’s Church Bishops Tachbrook we let four rockets off after an early morning service (7.30am). If you are thinking of having fireworks early in a morning, remember that you can’t let fireworks off before 7.00am. We deliberately chose quiet rockets for our celebration (7.30am) and they were fired with the Launch Kontrol Pulse firing system
