tradition dates: The tradition dates back centuries in some places, according to CTV. In the Greek town of Ermioni, it has been observed the past 25 years. The ritual burning of Judas is a custom also observed by Roman Catholics in parts of Latin America as a symbolic punishment for Judas' betrayal of Christ for a monetary reward. About 20 small boats circled around a raft bearing a wire model of Judas that floated off Ermioni and then the figure was set ablaze. In older times, the Judas effigy was made of straw. More than 1,000 locals and visitors watched from shore and also listened to music and saw a laser show. (www.immigrantscanada.com). As reported in the news.
