How Christians in Syria celebrate the Resurrection of Christ

The Christians in Syria believe that there was an earthquake when Jesus rose and the stone was removed from the tomb. So they make this noise to emulate the sound – God, Gun, and Country style. In Syria, it’s part of the liturgy. As soon as the priest says, “Al-Maseeh Qam” (Jesus has risen), the earthquake begins – with a BANG. We love it, but don’t try this in your church. I repeat, do NOT try this in your local church since you will be arrested.
