Blonde in Heaven

Three blondes passed away and were 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, "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, tells her she's wrong, and then peers over his glasses at the third blonde.
He asks, "What is Easter?"
The third blonde smiles confidently and looks St. Peter in the eyes, I know what Easter is."
"Oh?" says St. Peter, incredulously.
"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 blonde 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."

Serving as a shrine and a source of inspiration, they became cherished family heirlooms. Most were destroyed in the purges led by Lenin and Stalin. As icons became scarce, values skyrocketed (especially abroad). The KGB launched a top-secret operation during the '60s to recover missing icons and to create 17th century "originals" (often duplicating styles and signatures of famous masters). Antiquities experts tell us it is virtually impossible to distinguish the clever KGB forgeries from the 300-year-old, unadulterated masterpieces. After carbon dating our icons, the Russian Ministry of Culture established that the wooden panels they're painted on are 300 years old. (They also assessed us 100% antiquity duties!). Exquisite art objects, each features the Madonna and Child (Virgin of Vladimir) with gold leaf border. No two exactly the same. A rare and wonderful collectible, at a fraction of the price you'd pay at auction or in an antique shop for an icon that may be no more "original" than ours. Your money back if not completely satisfied.
Jurassic Amber Cross - For centuries, amber has been a safeguard of virtue and a talisman to bring good fortune. These stunning, honey and molasses-colored pieces were rescued from Polish beaches along the Baltic Sea. (Some with "inclusions" – tiny organic artifacts – preserved inside). Skilled Polish jewelers have set the amber in a stunning sterling silver cross. 1¾", 18" sterling silver snake chain included.
