An Easter Story

Easter is almost here and I thought you may enjoy this story.

Three Appalachian Mountain gals died and were being interviewed by St. Peter. He said, “I have one question, and if you answer correctly, I will let you into Heaven.” He asked the first gal, “What is Easter?”

She answered, “Oh, that’s the one time of the year when our whole family gets together and we eat turkey.”

St. Peter just shook his head and said to the next gal, “What is Easter?”

She replied, “Oh, that is the time of year when our family gets together and we all open presents and the fat, jolly guy comes down the chimney.”

Again St. Peter just shook his head. He asked the third gal, “What is Easter?”

She said, “Oh, that’s when Christ died and they put him in a tomb and rolled a rock in front of it.”

St. Peter smiled and urged her, “Yes, go on.”

The third gal continued, “Then once a year we roll the rock away and he comes out, and if he sees his shadow, we have six more weeks of winter.”
