Three Blondes Arrive At The Gates “Three blondes died and arrived at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter greeted them and told them they would be able to enter if they could answer one simple question, “What is Easter?”
The first blonde replied, “Oh, that’s so easy. That’s the holiday in November when everyone gets together to give thanks and eat lots of turkey.”
“Wrong!” replied St. Peter, as he approached the second blonde.
“It’s the holiday in December,” she replied. “That’s when we put up a tree, exchange gifts and celebrate the birth of Jesus.”
“Wrong again!” exclaimed a disgusted St. Peter, as he approached the third blonde.
“Oh, I know what Easter is,” she said confidently.
“Really?” said a doubtful St. Peter.
“Sure. Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus was ready to complete his ministry on earth and ate his last supper, the Passover meal, with his disciples. After that evening, he was betrayed and turned over to a Jewish mob by one of the disciples. After a show trial, the Romans tortured him, made him wear a crown of thorns, took him to be crucified and then he was hung on a cross with nails driven through his hands and feet. Finally, he was stabbed in the side to make sure he was dead. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder,” she explained.
St. Peter was delighted with her knowledge.
The third blonde continued, “Each year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out. If he sees his shadow, that means we’re in for six more weeks of winter.”

A point source of light casts only a simple shadow, called an “umbra“. For a non-point or “extended” source of light, the shadow is divided into the umbra, penumbra and antumbra. Find more info about Shadows at Kiddle
