Every Easter, Christians celebrate the return of their beloved Jesus. But this year, someone else is making an exciting comeback: Chris.

According to the Daily Mail, the committee at Acomb Parish Church in North Yorkshire, U.K., ordered a couple of signs that were supposed to read “Christ Is Risen” in bold red font. But after those long 40 days of Lent, a brilliant typo from on high resulted an entirely different message.

Catherine Lloyd posted a photo of the sign to the Unvirtuous Abbey Facebook page.

While the sign itself is quite the riot, there’s gold in the comments as well. One man named Chris wrote, “I have risen every morning so far. I plan to continue. Thank you for the support.” Meanwhile, another commenter hopped on the typo train and wrote, “Thank the lard.”

Tim Nyberg got a little creative and flexed his photo editing skills, adding a particularly infamous Chris to the mix.

Happy Easter to Chrises everywhere.
