Three blondes died and are at the pearly gates of Heaven. St.
Peter tells them that they can enter the gates if they can answer one
simple question. St. Peter asks the first blonde, What is Easter?
The blonde replies, Oh, that's easy It's the holiday in November when
everyone gets together, eats turkey, and are thankful. Wrong
replies St. Peter, and proceeds to ask the second blonde the same
question, What is Easter? The second blonde replies, Easter is
the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents,
and celebrate the birth of Jesus. St. Peter looks at the second
blonde, shakes his head in disgust,tells her she's wrong, and then
peers over his glasses at the third blonde. He asks, What is Easter?
The third blonde smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes,
I know what Easter is. Oh? says St. Peter, incredulously. Easter
is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration
of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the last supper
and Jesus was later deceived and turned over to the Romans by one of
his disciples. The Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed
in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross
with nails through his hands. He was buried in a nearby cave which was
sealed off by a large boulder. St. Peter smiles broadly with
delight. The third blonde continues, Every year the boulder is moved
aside so that Jesus can come out... and, if he sees his shadow,
there will be six more weeks of winter.
