Bermuda's Good Friday Kites

Legend has it that a Bermudan teacher in need of a simple yet effective way to demonstrate the Ascension of Christ into heaven, used a kite decorated with Jesus' image to imprint the concept on the minds of his charges. As a result, Good Friday in Bermuda finds colorful, multi-sided kites made of sticks and tissue paper dotting skies all over the island.
