Three blondes died and are at the Pearly Gates of Heaven.
St. Peter tells them they can enter the gates if they can answer one simple little 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 gives thanks.”
“Wrong!” replies St. Peter, and proceeds to ask the second blonde the same question.
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 is wrong, and then peers over his glasses at the third blonde.
He asks, “What is Easter?”
The thirds 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 was deceived, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was crucified. 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 see his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter.”
