Charrette de la brebis

Rognonas - Christmas in Provence, Provençal Christmas - In December - Dates and program to be confirmed

La charrette de la brebis est une tradition de Noël chère à notre village.
Pendant la messe de minuit, quatre prieurs, revêtus d'un grand manteau de berger, coiffés d'un chapeau à large bord et portant un bâton avec une gourde de pèlerin, entrent dans l'église avec une petite charrette ornée de buis et tirée par une brebis.
Des enfants portant des agneaux suivent la charrette et les trois musiciens, une flûte, un tambour et le sonneur de timbales ferment la marche.
Une belle tradition qui dure depuis plus de 200ans.
La chorale Sainte-Cécile anime la veillée et la cérémonie et les Provençales participent à l'offrande.
