Burning Judas Easter Custom | Hydra
Updated: Apr 7
The burning of Judas is a special custom of the celebration of Labri (means: Shiny) of the Greek Pasha, which we find in different versions in several areas.
During the night of the Resurrection or at Pasha day there is a demonstration at a panoramic point. Then, the believers "punish" the traitor by burning his effigy.
It is a popular custom in Hydra, Crete and the Peloponnese.
