The Ceremony of the Holy Light
* Every year on Holy Saturday, the eve of Easter, the four Orthodox churches in the Holy Land (Greek, Armenian, Coptic, and Syrian) participate in the celebration of the Apparition of the Holy Light. A large number of people attend, each holding thirty-three candles, symbolic of the thirty-three years of Christ's life on earth.
