10 Hilarious and True Easter Disasters

Easter is unarguably the most important holiday in the Christian faith—you know, the day Jesus rose from the dead and made us right with God is pretty essential.

But, as Christians have a tendency to do, we’ve invented all sorts of strange traditions to go along with the celebration. From resurrection plays to egg hunts and Easter Bunny visits, the celebration of Christ’s victory over death can get pretty bizarre.

We asked you to share your your craziest Easter stories, and we compiled a few of our favorites here for your enjoyment.









One year, a bunch of friends and I decided to go to a sunrise service at a super fancy church. This church looks like a European cathedral and we were all dressed up for 5 a.m. singing around a huge fire outside and then going inside for service. Everyone had candles and the whole service is by candlelight before the sun rises.

I ended up in a row with two guy friends, separated from the rest of our group. Surrounded in darkness by people wearing fancy hats for Easter, I made it through about two songs before I heard an odd crackling and sizzling sound coming from my left.

The sound guy, who was positioned a few rows back, yelled “your hair is on fire!” I panicked and froze, couldn’t speak, and could only manage to hit my friend in the shoulder to notify him of the situation. He then proceeded to put the fire out by slapping my hair in his hands. My other friend was high pitched laughing uncontrollably and was useless.

After the fire was out, we decided to leave our row (getting some nasty looks from other church goers) and move up to our friends. The full humiliation came when we noticed the church had discretely placed several old men near our row to keep an eye on me. It was a memory I’ll never forget #happyeaster

One time, my pastor lit a stuffed Easter bunny on fire on stage and began ranting that the world was taking over Easter just like it has every other holiday. We stopped going to that church.
