Δεύτε λάβετε φώς (Come and get the light )

As every year the Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem will receive the holy light inside the holy tomb in Jerusalem, as a divine gift towards the faithful. The light will travel to Greece by airplane in time for the Resurrection Mass tonight.

The trick is to return home with your candle (λαμπάδα - lampada) still burning! There, the head of the household will mark the threshold creating a cross with the smoke from the candle.
