The true spirit of Greek easter
The story of the light, that the Greeks are holding in my photos. Is called the holy light.
This light has arrived by air plane from Jerusalem…
This light is from inside of the grave of Jesus. And They say that an Greek orthodox priest goes in to the holy grave and holds 33 candles( 33 candles, because that was how old Jesus were when hi died) these candles gets lit by them self ( or by Jesus Spirit). Then it gets past around to the people around and then taken back to Greece. At the airport in Athens many small planes are waiting to take this light and spread it around Greece.
Where it arrives in the different churches where the people gather, and around midnight this light gets past to the people!
This is way you can see the people take them to the streets and then to their homes!
Its really a lovely experience:)And they do this every Greek Easter:)
