Greek tradition : Burning of Judas!

First of all, Happy Easter friends :)

Sunday we went to Perissa village and saw Greek tradition : Burning of Judas! 

The Burning of Judas is a folk custom done in various places throughout Greece and other places. It is typically perfomed after the midnight service on Easter Sunday. At Perissa, Santorini, the local tradition is to hang an effigy of ‘Judas’ and burn him by shooting him. 

Greeks love to celebrate with noise, all Easter night there were fireworks. The boys were throwing petards starting from Friday. 

Here is small gallery from Perisa village shooting Judah.
