Easter is a holiday of faith and food, family and festivities ... and rockets?
That was the case on the Greek island of Chios Sunday, where two churches held a rocket war to celebrate the Orthodox Easter.
According to a report on Greekreporter.com, the goal for St. Mark's and Panaghia Erythiani is to hit the bell tower of the neighboring church. The churches are located about 400 yards -- about a quarter-mile -- away from each other.
Video posted by Russia Today shows the sky illuminated by the rockets, and parishoners standing amid sparks and smoke, gunning to win the Easter battle.
