Easter is less than a week away, and parents are gearing up for egg hunts, creepy bunny photos and serious sugar highs.
As with any holiday, having kids makes Easter extra chaotic ... and extra hilarious too. We scoured Twitter and found 49 funny tweets from parents about celebrating Easter.
Dad, the Easter Bunny should know that I don't like Rolos but he puts them in my basket every year.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) March 28, 2016
Me: (eating a Rolo) Yeah, that's weird.
Just explained to my kids that sometimes an evil bunny comes and eats kids' Easter candy on the night of Easter.— Jim Gaffigan (@JimGaffigan) March 28, 2016
I forgot to buy Easter eggs for the hunt this morning so I told my kids that this year the bunny hid them REALLY well.— Brian Hope (@Brianhopecomedy) April 5, 2015
Step 1: Paint Jesus on an Easter Egg.— Will Rodgers (@WilliamRodgers) March 27, 2016
Step 2: Hide the Easter Egg.

It's 10:30 at night. Should I tell my kids to give up on the Easter egg hunt or just let them keep looking?— Darin Loves Bacon (@darinlovesbacon) March 28, 2016
Based on all of the practice my daughters get looking for shoes, Easter eggs don't stand a chance this year.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) March 27, 2015
Easter tip: Tell your kids you hid an egg with $50 in it in the backyard but you don't remember where. Enjoy a quiet day indoors.— Abe Yospe (@Cheeseboy22) March 24, 2017

Please let that be chocolate.

My kid started using air quotes when saying "Easter Bunny," so I started using air quotes when talking about his "Easter candy."— qwertygirl (@qwertygirl) April 4, 2015
*8 year old walks into kitchen*— Brian Hope (@Brianhopecomedy) March 29, 2016

Parenting Tip: Strip down to your skivvies before stealing your kid's easter candy so you can pretend to be sleepwalking if you get caught.— HammBone (@hammbone84) April 6, 2016
Toddler found two and a half eggs at the Easter egg hunt. Yeah, HALF. No one was messing around during that thing.— dadpression (@Dadpression) March 27, 2016

One fun part about Easter is how your kids spend the entire day getting jacked up on candy and then you remember it's a school night.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) March 28, 2016
We covered our backyard in candy-filled Easter eggs. My 1-year-old picked up zero eggs and one piece of dog poop. Money well spent.— James Breakwell (@XplodingUnicorn) April 20, 2014
When did "Easter crafts" become a thing? What happened to the good old days of putting an egg in all the dye colors & watching it turn ugly?— Danielle Herzog (@martinisandmini) March 22, 2016
FYI: Talking into a half-eaten hollow chocolate bunny makes your voice louder, in case anyone needs their Easter candy to be more obnoxious— Wendy S. (@maughammom) March 30, 2016
My kids have figured out every hiding spot I have in this house, so I guess I have no choice but to finish this stash of Easter candy now.— Ash (@cray_at_home_ma) March 29, 2016
A cute and scientific thing I tell my kids is that the Easter Bunny's body would flop around for several minutes after decapitation.— Abe Yospe (@Cheeseboy22) March 28, 2017

Me: is that it?
5: and I found an Easter egg from last year & ate it.
Jesus died on the cross so you could put pictures of your kid's Easter basket on Facebook.— Simon Holland (@simoncholland) April 5, 2015

I hate those cliche tweets about parents eating all their kids Easter candy.
