Christmas at the Pearly Gates
Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly
"In honor of this holy season," Saint Peter said, "you must each
possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven."
The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter.
He flicked it on. It represents a candle, he remarked.
"You may pass through the pearly gates," said Saint Peter.
The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys.
He shook them and said, "They're bells."
"You, too, may pass through the pearly gates," replied Saint Peter.
The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally
pulled out a pair of women's panties.
Saint Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, "And
just what do those symbolize?"
The man replied, "They're Carol's!"
