Bright Week - The entire week is considered to be one continuous day and the main reason why fasting is completely prohibited to all Orthodox during the week.

"The Holy Fire is the most renowned miracle in the world of Eastern Orthodoxy. It has taken place at the same time, in the same manner, in the same place every single year for centuries. No other miracle is known to occur so regularly and so steadily over time. It happens in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the holiest place on earth, where Christ was crucified, entombed, and where He finally rose from the dead." ~ www.Holyfire.org/eng/
