In the Italian town of Sulmona, in the Piazza Garibaldi, an amazing and elaborate centuries-old tradition occurs for the celebration of Christ’s Ressurection on Easter. This tradition is almost like a play that is performed, but instead of actors, statues of the saints are held aloft.

The tradition recalls the events of the resurrection, with statues of Saints Peter and John, Mary, and Christ. It reaches its culmination when the statue of Our Lady “sees” the resurrected Christ, her black cloak of mourning is torn away, releasing 12 doves, and those holding her begin a palpably joyful dash, representing a mother seeing her Beloved Son alive again.

It reminded be of another interesting Roman Catholic tradition, present in some parts of Poland.

In Poland the tradition of the Lord's grave (equivalent of epitaphios) with the Eucharist (consecrated on the Holy Thursday and put processionaly into the grave on the Good Friday in the end of the service, being there until the Paschal eve/morning) is very important, and in many places there is a guard (altar boys, firegithers, chosen/voluntary men) in front of it.
On very early Sunday morning, that begins with procession across the housing estate or the disctrit (and after that there is solemn Easter Mass) in some places this guard, after the priest's excalmation "Christ is risen" answer "Indeed He is risen", when people start chanting "A joyuous day has revealed to us" and priest takes the Eucharist from the grave (symbol of Christ's resurrection and empty tomb) the guard falls down on the floor. Some examples:
