In the lighter mood: Santa


Santa died and went to heaven. When he got to the pearly gate Saint Peter told him that new rules were in effect due to advances in education on earth.

In order to gain admittance a prospective heavenly soul must answer two questions:

1. Name two days a week that begin with ‘T’, and

2. How many seconds are there in a year?

Santa thought for a few minutes and answered…

1 The two days that begin with ‘T’ are Today and Tomorrow.

2. There are twelve seconds in a year.

Saint Peter said, ‘OK, I’ll buy Today and Tomorrow, even though it’s not the answer I expected, so your answer is correct. But how did you get only 12 seconds in a year?’

Santa replied, ‘Well, January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd, etc…

Saint Peter let him in without another word.
