One thing leads to another and they end up barhopping all night. While going to one last place, they get in a terrible accident and all three are killed.
They find themselves standing in front of the Pearly Gates.
St Peter tells them, “Boys, you’re in luck. Since it’s Christmas, we have a special policy. Show me anything that shows that you’re celebrating the day, and you get into Heaven.”
One guy pulls out his lighter and flicks it. “Christmas candle.”
“OK, it’s a stretch, but you’re in.”
Second guy pulls out his keys and jingles them. “Christmas bells.”
“Whatever, you’re in.”
Third guy pulls a pair of women’s panties out of his pocket.
St. Peter says, “Hold up. I’m willing to stretch a point today, but what do panties have to do with Christmas?”
