Athens Municipality to Light City’s Sky for Easter

Fireworks will be set off at the stroke of midnight on Holy Saturday, April 18, in seven parts of Athens center, as an alternative way to celebrate the Orthodox Easter in the Greek capital this year due to the strict measures taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).

“Tonight, we all #menoumespiti (#stayhome) to celebrate the Resurrection. At midnight, at the time of the ‘Christos Αnesti’ (Christ is Risen) wish, the sky in seven municipal units of the city will light up with fireworks,” the Municipality of Athens said in an announcement.

“So, from our balconies or windows, the residents of Athens – and not only – will be able to all enjoy the Resurrection message, the radiance and the light of optimism for tomorrow.”

Athens Mayor Kostas Bakoyannis posted on his facebook page:
“At the time of the ‘Christos Αnesti’ wish, let’s all look up! Tonight we illuminate the sky with the municipality’s fireworks. From the balcony, from the window, but with a lot of love. For the holy light. Kali Anastasi! (Happy Resurrection!)”
