red.neck Easter!

Three Rednecks just died,
and arrive 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 Redneck,

The Redneck replies, "Oh, that's easy,
it's the holiday in November when
everybody gets together,
eats turkey, and is thankful..."

"WRONG," replies St. Peter,
and proceeds to ask the second Redneck
the same question,

The second Redneck replies,
"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 Redneck,
shakes his head in disgust,
looks at the third Redneck and asks,

The third Redneck smiles and looks St. Peter 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 deceived
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 with nails through his hands.
He was buried in a nearby cave
which was sealed off by a large boulder."
St. Peter smiles broadly with delight.

The third Redneck continues,
"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."

May the spirit of hope that Easter brings,
Help you find contentment in little things,
And restore your faith in the Lord above,
Who gave His life for the ones He loves.

Wishing You and Your Family A Very Happy Easter!!!
