The seminary celebrated the resurrection of our Lord with a four-story bonfire made of dry bamboo (no pictures, alas), followed by the normal Saturday vigil mass. Normally, the priest lights the fire and prays, and then we light our candles and go inside; but we just watched the fire in awe for awhile. The bamboo crackled and splintered due to the air instead being heated, such that our resurrection fire sounded like fireworks!
