Poland’s Easter celebration involves 100 percent more garbage can cannons
Your traditions will likely fizzle by comparison.
This will make most of your Easter celebration seem tame by comparison.
While the rest of us were dying eggs and eating chocolate bunnies, some people in Poland were busy setting off homemade carbide cannons in what’s becoming a disappearing tradition.

It’s a local tradition that takes place over Easter weekend, meant to commemorate the “Exodus of Jesus from the grave.” The explosion itself symbolizes the sound of opening Jesus’s tomb. The most shocking thing is that we didn’t think to do this here in ‘Murcia. Maybe next year?
