A Blond, a Brunette and a Redhead die and go to Heaven. They were met by Saint Peter at the Golden Gate.
Saint Peter says,”Heaven in filling up so you ladies have to answer a question before I let you pass through the Pearl Gates.”
“What is Easter?”
The Brunette pushes the other two aside and says, “I know, I know. That’s when Santa flies his sleigh all over the World and gives presents to all the good little boys and girls.”, she blurts out.
“Uh…no…that’s Christmas.”, says Saint Peter.
After a moment of silence, the redhead raises her hand and says, “Easter is when everyone in your family comes together and everyone offers prayers of Thanksgiving to God for all His Blessings. Then you eat a big Feast of Turkey with all the trimmings.”
Saint Peter lets out a big sigh. “No….that’s Thanksgiving.”
He turns to the blond and asks her if she know what Easter is. She thinks for a moment than takes her finger out of her mouth and slowly, quietly begins to speak.
“Easter,” she says, “celebrates our Savior’s journey to Jerusalem. During Passover, he is arrested by the Romans. He stood trail before Pilate and was beaten and tortured and crucified. He died and his body was placed in a tomb. But on the third day, the rock sealing the tomb was rolled aside and Jesus arose from the Dead and came forth.”
“And if he sees his shadow, we get three more weeks of Lent.”
