The Haric fire is considered by Orthodox Christians to be a miracle that happens every year at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem on Holy Saturday, the day before Orthodox Easter. Above the Holy Sepulcher a fire is lit which descends from heaven, manifesting itself differently every year and which, in the first minutes, does not burn. Many consider it the oldest attested annual miracle in the Christian world. It has been consistently documented since 1106. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher was built on the site where, according to the Bible, Jesus Christ was buried.
