Midnight: the church bells ring, and people carry home the Easter light to their homes... A joyful celebration - and none of this waiting until the morning!
As the Western Christmas is about a beginning in the middle of the night, the Orthodox Easter is about a triumphant completion: a Light that cannot be extinguished, even on the darkest night.
It had rained most of the day, with a glae blowing: by midnight, the rian had stopped, and the wind was gone.
We got our candles back to the apartment still lit!
