Many, many moons ago Greek Christians would celebrate the Sunday after Easter as Holy Humor Sunday. The idea was the resurrection had brought joy back into our hearts so let’s celebrate with laughter and merriment. They would get together and tell jokes, play practical jokes on each other., sing joy filled songs, and dance.
So, in honor of the joy Jesus’ Resurrection has brought into my heart here are a couple of jokes:
A pastor was speaking to a group of second-graders about the resurrection of Jesus when one student asked, “What did Jesus say right after He came out of the grave?”
The pastor explained that the Gospels do not tell us what He said.
The hand of one little girl shot up. “I know what He said: He said, ‘Tah-dah!'”
A man had been shipwrecked on a remote island in the Pacific, and was alone for 20 years. When a ship finally arrived, his rescuers were impressed with the three buildings he had built and asked him about them.
“Well,” the man replied, “this is my house, and that building over there is my church. It’s a wonderful church and I hate to leave it.”
“And what is the third building yonder?” a rescuer asked.
“Oh, that is the church I used to go to,” the man replied.
Celebrate the joy of the Resurrection!
