While Easter has origins in religion, the holiday is an open celebration for people of all backgrounds, and it's not uncommon for even those who aren't religious to partake in the celebrations by spending time with family, participating in Easter egg hunts, and devouring giant chocolate bunnies between meals of egg-shaped candy. A holiday like Easter is special, celebrated with joy by kids and adults alike. Seriously, are you ever too old to paint Easter eggs and eat chocolate bunnies? Absolutely not. Considering it's a holiday with such massive popularity, it's likely you're going to want to think up some creative Easter Instagram caption ideas to post on Apr. 1.

That's right: In 2018, Easter gets a bit of a fun twist by falling on Apr. 1, better known as April Fools' Day. This sort of coincidence has actually become a pattern in 2018, if you think about it: in February, Ash Wednesday fell on the same day as Valentine's Day. While Easter's match up with April Fools' Day may not seem like a big deal, it's definitely a coincidence you should take advantage of. This is the first time since 1956 that Easter and April Fools' Day have coincided — that's a long time! While that's quite some time ago, the next instance is coming in only 11 years, in 2029. However, while 11 years is shorter than the previous 62, it's still a long time to wait to pull the perfect Easter/April Fools' Day prank.

There's no reason you can't celebrate Easter properly while also pulling pranks. Today, one of the steps to celebrate any holiday properly is to post about it on social media. Seriously, did you even do Easter if you don't post a picture on Instagram of you next to some freshly painted eggs?
