Easter Candles / Lambades


A sacred Greek Tradition is the Anastasi, it  is symbolized by the light of the Lambada or Easter Candle.

Just before midnight everyone goes to their church carrying beautifully decorated Easter candles. All of the lights are turned off, as a symbol of Jesus' descending to the kingdom of death, and a moment later the priest announces 'Christos Anesti,' or Christ Has Risen!

  People carefully carry their candle home and make a black cross on their house with the flame to bless themselves. A beautiful and spiritual tradition.
