Story: According to an ancient Russian Orthodox tradition, the day before Easter was devoted to telling jokes.


Priests would join the people in telling their best jokes to one another. (presumably “clean” jokes!!)


The reason was to reflect the joke God pulled on the devil in the Resurrection.


Satan thought he won on Friday, but God had the last laugh on Easter Sunday.
