Have You Seen The Two Churches That Have A Fireworks Ground War Against Each Other Every Year


Rouketopolemos (“rocket war”) is the name of the event held annually in the town of Vrontados on the Greek island of Chios.

At midnight before Orthodox Easter Sunday [as defined by the Julian calendar], two rival church congregations, (St. Mark’s and Panaghia Ereithiani.), perform a “rocket war” by firing over 50,000 handmade rockets at each other.

  1. Interesting. Though, can be dangerous to fire them at each other.
