Sunday, Apr. 26th, Why Holy Humor Sunday?

In the early centuries of Christianity the faithful observed the Sundays after Easter as “days of joy and laughter” with parties and picnics to celebrate Jesus’ resurrection – to laugh at Satan’s defeat and to revel in Christ’s victory over death. The custom was rooted in the musings of early church theologians that Go played a practical joke on the devil by raising Jesus from the dead. “Risus paschalis – the Easter laugh,” the early theologians called it. In 1988 the Fellowship of Merry Christians began encouraging churches and prayer groups to resurrect this old Eastertide custom and call it “Holy Humor Sunday,” with the theme: “Jesus is the LIFE of the paty.”.
