The streets in Greece were empty this year for Easter, something never seen before.

We all #stayedhome to protect our loved ones amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Christos Kissatzekian shares snapshots from the different Easter of 2020 in Athens, where families in the same household came together to celebrate on rooftops, balconies and terraces.

Holy Saturday was also extremely different as millions of people watched the Anastasi Resurrection service from their TV’s instead of going to church.

Fireworks were set off at the stroke of midnight on Holy Saturday, in seven parts of the centre of Athens, as an alternative way to celebrate Easter in the Greek capital this year, due to the strict measures imposed to curb the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19).
