What is Easter?
Three blondes died together in a car accident on Easter Monday. As they were at the gates of heaven, St. Peter told them that they can enter if they can answer one, very simple question.
'What is Easter?' he asked the first blonde.
'I know, I know, Easter is the holiday in December when we decorate the tree, exchange presents, and celebrate the birth of Jesus.'
'Wrong!' replied St. Peter harshly and asked the same question from the second blonde, 'What is Easter?'
'Oh, this is easy! It's a holiday, it is in November. Everyone gets together, eats a lot of turkey, and are thankful...'
'Wrong!' roared St. Peter.
He looked at the second blonde and shook his head in disgust.
'What is Easter?' he asked the third blonde.
The third blonde smiled confidently.
'I know what Easter is. Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus was betrayed and turned over to the Romans by one of his disciples. The Romans took him to be crucified. He was stabbed in the side, had to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross. He was buried in a cave which was sealed off by a large rock.'
St. Peter smiled broadly with delight and acknowledgement.
The third blonde continued, 'Every year the rock is moved aside so that Jesus can come out. If he sees his shadow, there will be two more months of winter.'
