Today marks the most famous incident in history of a dead man rising from his grave. And on this auspicious occasion, zombiephiles worldwide--and the followers of a Nazarene carpenter--have much to celebrate.
For Christians, this day is Easter, the most sacred holiday of the year, in which Jesus Christ rose from the dead after being crucified and buried. It's a big deal, this resurrection, and it's celebrated with a mass and feasting and family time and (for some reason we can't figure out) a bunny hiding eggs for children to find.
For zombiephiles of course, today is widely known as Zombie Jesus Day. On this less-than-solemn occasion, zombiephiles take note of three irrefutable facts:
- Anything that rises from the dead is a zombie.
- Jesus of Nazareth died and after three days walked out of his tomb of his own volition.
- If it walks like a duck, then it's probably a duck.
In their light-hearted, irreverent way, zombiephiles can celebrate by shopping at the official Zombie Jesus Day website, by watching the "Zombie Jesus" independent film, or by reading the comic "Prince of Pieces." It's all in good fun, and really we're just glad that there's no indication the real Jesus was roaming the Earth hungering for human flesh.
But wait... what was that about "Take this and eat; this is my body and my blood"?
Ok, so maybe we're not so sure Jesus wasn't technically a zombie. Happy Zombie Jesus Day!
