    Definitely an "expats-only" thing.
    I couldn't come even if I could.

    I'd bet that a deal was offered because of expected reduced clientele on the evening of Pascha. A large portion of even only nominally Orthodox show up for Paschal services.
    Ouch! You've definitely forgot about those damned atheists. For example, I don't know when there is any Easter, or Peisah, or Ramadan. And this is good and correct.

    And all the men and women merely agents

    I said "reduced clientele", NOT "non-existent".

    Yeah, it would attract a particular kind of expat....

    I am not sure what you mean Rus
    In my circle, even though people care about celebrating Pascha (kulichis and painted eggs), none of them goes for overnight services. Only afternoon.
    Если жизнь тебя обманет,
    Не печалься, не сердись!
    В день уныния смирись:
    День веселья, верь, настанет.

    Сердце будущим живет;
    Настоящее уныло:
    Все мгновенно, все пройдет;
    Что пройдет, то будет мило.

    So your circle doesn't include the nominals who go to church to see the Procession and midnight Liturgy. That's all it means. Attendance triples (at least) on the biggest holidays.

    You can ask to join the group and you will then, once you have been "approved", be able to see the event....

    VicY, I have added you to the group, as we are FB friends, so you don't need to do anything but wait!!
    Sadly, I still cannot see the event

    Try this link....

    I think they have created a new event because of the restrictions set when the previous event had been created, after which they couldn't be changed!!
