Three blondes died, and they all found themselves at the pearly gates of Heaven, standing before St.Peter.
He told them that before they could enter the Kingdom of Heaven, they would have to demonstrate that they were Christians. To do this, he would require each of them to explain to him what Easter represented.
The first blonde, who was an American, said to St. Peter: “Easter is a holiday where they have a big feast and we give thanks and eat turkey.”
St. Peter, horrified by her lack of understanding of the Christian faith, said, “Noooooo!” and he banished her to Hell.
The second blonde, who was British, said to St. Peter: “Easter is when we celebrate the birth of Jesus and exchange gifts.”
St. Peter, again horrified by her lack of understanding of the Christian faith, said, “Noooooo!” and he banished her to Hell.
The third blonde, who was a Canadian girl, said that she knew what Easter was.
St. Peter said, “So, tell me, what is Easter?.”
She said to him: “Easter is a Christian celebration that coincides with the Jewish festival of Passover. Jesus was having a Passover feast with His disciples when He was betrayed by Judas, and the Romans arrested Him. The Romans hung Him on the cross and eventually He died. Then they buried Him in a tomb behind a very large boulder … ”
St. Peter said, “Verrrrrry good!”, and was about to tell her that she would be accepted into Heaven, when then the blonde continued:
“Now, every year the Jews roll away the boulder and Jesus comes out. If he sees his shadow, we have six more weeks of hockey.”
St. Peter fainted.
