Three guys die and are transported to the Pearly Gates, where St. Peter greets them warmly, explaining that there's just one brief formality before they can be admitted to heaven. Each will have to answer one quick question. Turning to the first fellow he asks, "What is Easter?" "That's an easy one. That's to celebrate when the Pilgrims landed. You buy a turkey and really stuff yourself...." "I'm sorry," interrupts St. Peter. "You're out." Turning to the second man, he asks, "What can you tell me about Easter?" "No problem," he replies. "To commemorate the birth of Jesus, you go out shopping and get this tree and all these presents...." "Forget it," says St. Peter disgustedly. Turning to the third man. "I don't suppose you'd know anything about Easter, would you?" "Certainly," he replies. "You see, Christ was impaled and he died, and they took the body down from the torture stake and wrapped it in a shroud and put it in a cave and rolled this big stone across the entrance..." "Wait a minute, wait a minute," interrupts St. Peter excitedly, waving for the first two guys to come over. "We got someone here who knows his stuff." "And after three days they roll the stone away," continues the third guy, "and if he sees his shadow there's going to be six more weeks of winter."
