Obviously, black-and-white photographs of old-fashioned Halloween costumes are creepy. Retro Christmas can get a bit skin-crawling, too, and there’s nothing worse than the early days of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But Easter—surely Easter is nothing but fluffy bunnies and happy candy consumption, right?
See any witches zipping around last night? If so, that’s because it was Maundy Thursday, and apparently Swedish Easter traditions bear more than a passing resemblance to American Halloween.
As Refinery 29 reports, this Sunday billions of Christians around the world will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which famously occurred three days after he died from crucifixion at the hands of Pontius Pilate and his ruthless Roman soldiers. But one question remains: What time is Easter?
No words needed, really.
I may not celebrate Easter myself, but from what I can tell, marshmallow Peeps and multi-colored eggs have nothing on the mad Easter game Mexico is running right now.
When I was a child, Peeps were Daylight Saving for my soul. As the days grew warmer, the technicolor hues of the marshmallow candy began sprouting on drugstore shelves, the confectionery equivalent of daffodils and tulips.
Basically, there are two Easters: the very important day on the Christian religious calendar, and the commercialized candy orgy. This secular celebration of spring is all in good fun—only it gets a little weird when you stare into its sugary heart for too long.
On Monday, at the White House Easter Egg Roll, President Obama’s reading of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are was interrupted by bees. The children in attendance screamed, because children and bees are natural enemies. The President urged them to stop screaming, because “bees are good,” and besides, wild…
File Easter egg hunts under “things that parents ruin for everyone.” A massive egg search in Sacramento was supposed to break a world record for “the world’s largest Easter egg hunt” but the only award the event is winning is one in embarrassment and regret. And the record for crying toddlers whose fun was ruined by…
Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, stuffed to the gills with ham and pastel candy, I sat down to watch the sequel to the hugely popular 2013 miniseries The Bible. No, not The Road to Salt Lake City. I'm talking, of course, about AD: The Bible Continues.
Here’s the Kardashian/Jenner/West clan, looking very Partridge Family and flowy and also like they don’t give a fuck that they’re totally underdressed for church.
That’s a lot of Easter candy for one baby. Hope she knows how to share!
Welcome to Grim Yelp Reviews, a new regular feature where we share people’s worst experiences at the worst places. This week’s bonus round: Easter.
Yesterday, a Virginia neighborhood was very alarmed to discover that someone had littered residents' yards with Easter eggs stuffed with white supremacist literature. Shocking, but of course the Easter bunny always did get hateful after too many beers.
Like so many of us, this pair of cute lil' buns celebrated the Easter holidays by engaging in a televised orgy on top of a desk.
Today is a very very special day. In a most spectacular convergence, everyone’s favorite candy-related New Testament holiday has fallen on April 20, which also happens to be everyone’s favorite weed-related holiday. The event has lovingly been dubbed ‘Weedster,’ and it’s basically Haley’s comet meets the Blood Moon.…
I don't know how you're celebrating Easter (I celebrate it the next day with bags of slightly crushed chocolate eggs that were 75% off) (and which I slightly crushed myself), but Nerve is doing it with an intricately-curated gallery of half-naked people in bunny heads.
The best part about holidays (besides that some of them come with presents and some of them come with your parents going on a cruise and leaving you alone) is that there's often some kind of food challenge that goes along with the festivities. On Independence day people force hundreds of hot dogs down their throats…
Apparently unsatisfied with only Yuletide declarations of being warred upon, Fox News is now trying to convince its perpetually oppressed white, male, elderly, Christian audience that another Christian holiday is Under Attack: Easter. Hey guys, get down from that cross! There's already another guy up there!
A Michigan mother was very, very concerned to discover that there was a mysterious pill hidden inside a plastic egg from her preschooler's Easter egg hunt. It was later identified as not a weirdly misshapen jelly bean, but rather Alprazolam, a generic version of Xanax.
