In Italy, Church bells ring joyfully during the year . But the bells stop ringingon the Thursday before Good Friday (“Venerdì Santo” in Italian). They are silent for a few days while people remember the death of Jesus.

On Easter Sunday at midnight the bells ring out , telling the people that Jesus is alive again.

When people hear the bells, they kiss and hug one another
