A Greek woman holds a candle in a church's yard protected by a metal fence as rockets are fired in the night sky during a traditional Easter celebration in the town of Vrontados, on the Greek island of Chios, early on April 20, 2014. As a variation of the Greek custom of throwing fireworks during the celebration of the Orthodox service at midnight before Easter Sunday, two rival church parishes in the town, the Agios Markos and Panagia Erithiani churches, perform a 'Rocket War' by firing thousands of homemade rockets towards each other while services are held.
