For Easter, everyone gathers around the church while priests and other church figures parade with richly colored flags and sing. A decorated wooden cart is loaded with fireworks and placed outside the church's massive doors. The church's huge doors are opened, and a paper dove is lit on fire inside the church, and "flies" outside on a wire to ignite the fireworks on the cart.
