Video: Fireworks War, Greek Town Celebrates Easter With a Rocket War Against Its Neighbor


I always found fireworks, I don’t know kinda pointless and boring – at least that is until now. Two parishes, Panagia Erithiani and Saint Mark’s, launch fireworks, lots of fireworks at each other once a year on Easter to celebrate a custom that dates back to Turkish occupation. While it might sound dangerous, it is a marked safety advance from the days in which they used small cannons instead. [Lesvos Ecotourism via Cynical C, Neatorama]
