From the Time and Date.com site page
on Ascension day:
Day celebrations include processions symbolizing Christ’s entry into
heaven and, in some countries, chasing a “devil” through the streets
and dunking it in a pond or burning it in effigy – symbolic of the
Messiah’s triumph over the devil when he opened the kingdom of heaven
to all believers.
liturgical color in many churches is white on Ascension Day. Symbols
include the ascending Christ, birds flying homeward, open gates, a lion
conquering a dragon, Elijah's fiery chariot and a broken chain.
This is exciting!! Isn't it wonderful to be a Bible-believing, watching-and-praying Christian, and Dove, these days?!
