Celebrate Easter with These Delightfully Geeky Decorated Eggs
Meerkats like Easter too, y'all.
Today is Easter, that beloved holiday where we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It’s also, inexplicably, the day we tell kids that the Easter Bunny comes to their house and hides candy and treat-filled eggs. The son of God is reborn AND we get candy?! What a holiday.
Even those of us who aren’t Christian enjoy getting in on the Easter fun, whether it’s decorating eggs, organizing an egg hunt, or simply buying discount candy the Monday after. Luckily, egg decorating has inspired the nerdiest among us to customize our own eggs with our favorite comic book heroes, pop culture references, and science puns.
Here’s some of our favorite geeky Easter eggs, treats, and memes that really showcase your creativity:
