This Easter Tradition Almost Killed An Entire Village

A change of atmosphere.

For the younger readers, it's important to remember that Easter isn’t just a bank holiday where you get the chance to watch episode 2 of Game of Thrones' eighth and final season as soon as you wake up. Easter is a religious holiday where Christians commemorate the resurrection of Jesus. All over the world, Christians and atheists alike come together to celebrate this day, usually with their families. For kids, Easter is also the dream opportunity to participate in an Easter egg hunt.

In the village of Cornellà del Terri in Spain, however, the Easter celebrations nearly plunged a whole village into mourning. Every year, the Easter ritual is that a tree has to be felled on the main square of the city; a tradition that almost turned into a nightmare, after the tree fell in a different direction, almost crushing the villagers.

Thankfully, the incident caused more fear than it did harm, and had no casualties - but the footage is enough to put a shiver down your spine.
