It’s Easter and Sham El-Nessim in Egypt (and the world!). So, instead of spending your day reading about the country’s violence and unrest, check out these 10 videos that will surely make you laugh and smile.

3. Egypt’s ‘Hidden Camera’ Legend: Zakiya Zakariya

Zakiya Zakariya is known across Egypt and the Arab world for his hilarious ‘hidden camera’ pranks. Seriously: these came long before ‘Just For Laughs’ became popular and they never get old!

7. The moment Hosni Mubarak resigned after 18-days of relentless protesting by Egypt’s youth

For 18 days, young men and women chanted for bread, liberty and social justice. For 18 days, they stood in the Square asking for a better future.

8. ‘The Pyramid Pee Prank’

If you want to prank Egyptians, it is likely not a great idea to do it at one of the World’s Ancient Wonders.

9. ‘Let’s kiss and forget the world’: romance on the silver screen

Egypt’s cinema in the first half of the 1900’s was starkly different from that of today’s, with plenty of on-screen kissing that rivals today’s Hollywood films. There is almost little to no kissing on the silver screen today.
