People anticipate the arrival of the Holy Fire in the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.

It is taken to big centres of Orthodox Christianity by special flights and the arrival of the Holy Fire becomes a big local religious event. It does not burn for the first time, so people can touch it. The scientific nature of it is not explained officially.
