Sorry to interrupt the discussion, but I thought this was pretty cool:
My daughter spent Easter on the Greek island of Chios, famous for an annual war between two churches on Easter. They try to ring the rival church's bell with rockets, from across the valley. My daughter was in one of the churches during a service while the barrage was happening:

This is an Easter tradition that I could get excited about!
