Easter can get pretty serious, it is all about a guy coming back from the dead after all! So to keep things on the light side I decided to put together a list of the funniest quotes and sayings about Easter.
This was a lot of fun to research and I probably spent a bit too much time on it truth be told. I found awesome quotes from a very diverse assortment of writers, philosophers, and cultural icons. There are entries from country-western singers (Dolly Parton), kids cartoonists (Charles M. Shulz of Peanuts fame), and even a couple of bonefied movie stars!
So without further ado – here is my compilation of the 50+ Funniest Easter quotes, Easter captions, and funny Easter sayings of all time.
