"Holy Fire" ceremony, an Easter tradition in Jeruselem

A dramatic Easter week tradition in Jerusalem.
On April 19th, thousands of Orthodox Christian worshipers gathered at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for the annual "holy fire" ceremony.

According to Orthodox tradition, holy fire miraculously emanates from the tomb of Jesus on the day before Easter.

Worshipers light their own candles from the priest's flame and carry their back to their homes.
