There are some churches that start the celebration in a service during the darkness. Afterwards, twelve candles are lit one by one and then these candles are used to light other candles around the church. For each lit of a candle, the priest will state “Christ has risen” and the rest of the people or audience within the church responds “He has risen indeed.” Countries like Greece even make use of fireworks to make the celebration a lot more alive.

During Easter Day, this tomb will be rolled away.
