The second man replied, Easter is that holiday where you set up a tree And decorate it and that man in the funny red suit comes down the chimney and…

St. Peter was feeling very discouraged. Did anybody know what Easter was? He walked over to the third man and asked, Tell me, what is the meaning Of Easter.
