Three blondes died and are at the 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 is the holiday in November when everyone gets together and eats turkey.”
“Wrong” says St. Peter. He turns to the second blonde and asks her the same question.
She replies: “Easter is the holiday when we put up a tree, exchange presents, and celebrate the birth of Jesus.”
“Wrong”, says St. Peter in disgust. He turns to the third blonde, and asks her the same question. “Do you know what Easter is?”
“Yes, I do” replied the blonde, “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 his side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross with nails through his hands. He was buried in a cave which was sealed off by a large boulder.”
St. Peter is smiling broadly with great 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.”
