Easter Saturday!!!!!!!!!

Some pics of Easter Saturday night, a bit more successful than Fridays pics, I had time to practice some night time picture taking before going down to the square!

View as a slideshow & show info as it explains the sequence of events & makes more sense as a whole!

I also have a couple of videos which I can't up load yet, one just after midnight with the priest trying to be heard above the noise of the fireworks & church bells!

I managed not to burn my ear, or set my hair on fire, but I WALKED all the way home with it still lit (10 mins uphill!), noticed Sunday that I dripped wax all down my black trousers!

Lovely photos Yiassas, thanks for sharing. We dripped wax all over the house, don't worry it can be ironed out..{iron with kitchen paper to absorb the wax}
