Easter: Bonfires At St Lazarus Church Larnaca

Cyprus has many celebrations each year for easter, many unique to each town and village, but everywhere, you will see bonfires lit at the churches.

You will find this happens on Easter Saturday evening when everyone goes to mass in the evening.

When Christ is proclaimed risen by the priest, the congregation go and light their candle from the fire, and fireworks are set off in Celebration.

A great, shared event, don't forget to take your camera with you...
