Easter - It falls on a Sunday this year . . .

Three blondes are at the

pearly 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's the

holiday in November when everyone gets

together, eats turkey, and are thankful..."

 

"WRONG," replies St. Peter, and proceeds

to ask the second blonde the same question,

"WHAT IS EASTER?"

 

The second blonde replies, "No, 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, looks at the third blonde

and asks,

"WHAT IS EASTER?"

 

The third blonde smiles and looks St. Pete

in the eye.

"I know what Easter is. 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 betrayed

and turned over to the Romans by one 

of his disciples.

 

The Romans took him to be crucified and 

he was stabbed in the side, made to wear

a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross.

 

He was buried in a nearby cave which was

sealed off by a large boulder.  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."

Welcome to the site!

Hey, welcome to the forum! I've heard that joke before, and I have to tell you that you found the right place to post it!

Hope to see you stick around and again, welcome!

I thought this was going to be proof that the bible is true. Like Rick Warren's proof that "Jesus is the author of history" because the calandar is divided into BC and AD.
