Midnight on Easter night, Athens



Neighbours make their way to church, stopping to buy  candles which get lit at midnight by a holy flame. 



A man looks so lovingly at his girlfriend, I couldn't help but take a picture. 


The holy flame gets passed from person to person, eventually everyone is holding a lit candle. 


The priest chants for the waiting crowd as children play on the stairs behind.
