Today Orthodox Christians celebrate the beginning of Holy Week - the first week of the Easter celebrations. All religious services are carried out in a special fashion. The churches open the front doors wide open, which symbolizes that Christ had opened the way to paradise for all the people. Orthodox Belarusians will be celebrating Easter until the Ascension on 9 June. According to holy writings, after resurrection Christ spent 40 days with his disciples.
