Fact is stranger than fiction. The real world is stranger than movies. And life is full of mystery. I believe it, but it sounds a bit cheesy when you say it out loud, doesn’t it? Well, fortunately for all of you mystery-loving, secret-adoring, hidden detail-worshipping Pandas out there, the phrase turns out to be very true. And we can’t wait to share this with you.

Sitting in a nook on Reddit, there’s a very special community called r/IRLEasterEggs. Created back in 2015 and now housing over 433k members, it’s dedicated to documenting, sharing, and celebrating all of the tiny (and not so tiny) Easter eggs hidden in real life that people happen to stumble upon. As it turns out, it’s not just movies, TV shows, and video games that have delightful secrets stashed away for only the most perceptive and the incredibly lucky to find. Human beings and real life are much more interesting than some of us give them credit for.

Check out some of the most brilliant IRL Easter eggs that people have lovingly crafted below, give the tastiest finds an upvote, and be sure to let us know which ones were your faves and why. Found any Easter eggs in real-life yourselves? We’d love to hear all about them, dear Pandas.

“You know in games or movies when you find an odd little secret that someone in production left unnoticed for the few in the audience that would look for it or happen to stumble upon it? This is the place to share those things you find in real life,” the r/IRLEasterEggs community explains its goal and what their online community is all about.

From the first moments that you visit the subreddit, it’s very obvious that the r/IRLEasterEggs community and its moderators have a wickedly awesome sense of humor and like to have fun. But I guess that comes with the territory—finding small secrets sprinkled all around the world makes you see the fun in life, no matter how hard the silver lining might be to find on some days.

The moderators are very clear and concise with the rules other members have to follow. They add tiny quirky comments to the rules, making it all really self-explanatory stuff, to be honest. From “don’t seek out conflict” (i.e. don’t be a jerk) to “I feel like I just saw this…” (i.e. try not to repost too often).

The fact that this subreddit exists also shows how many artists, craftsmen, and just your average Joe creatives adding magic to the hidden corners of the world there really are. Who needs Hogwarts when we’ve all got the potential to be wizards anyway?
