Easter Sunday

Kastellorizo

At about midday on Easter Sunday we went to the church on the hill to witness the burning of Judas.  An effigy of Judas was hanging on a rope and children were throwing stones at him. Two dances were performed by only women in the square and then the papa set light to the effigy. I have to say it was a very emotional ceremony performed in a very perfunctory  way. Let the pics speak. And, how do we celebrate easter in the the UK?
