Citizens of a Greek town on the Peloponnese peninsula have revived an old Orthodox Easter tradition of the “burning of the Judas.” A fleet of boats circled a figure of Judas in the town of Ermioni Sunday night, or Easter Sunday in Greece, before setting it alight. The figure of Judas, which is often built from straw, is hung from a tree, and burned. The tradition dates back several centuries.
