Midnight against Easter

At midnight against Easter in the church temples a solemn worship is held, and at exactly 0.00 h, the priest announces the Resurrection of the Son of God with the words “Christ the Voccasion!” And the Christians answer “Vistina Voscreesta!”.

The priest lightes a candle from which all present light their candles, trying to keep the flame as long as possible, and then carry it to their homes.
