Greece, Chios Island, Vrontados, Church Rocket War, Rouketopolemos – two rival churches fire around 60, 000 firework rockets at each other between 8 pm on Holy Saturday and 0: 30 am Easter Sunday. Each year two orthodox churches on Chios Island combine traditional services with something a little more unusual – a full-on fireworks battle. This year the rocket war takes place on March 26 to 27.
