Three men were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates. "In honor of the Holy season" said Saint Peter, "You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to enter Heaven."
The first one fumbled through his pockets, then pulled out and flicked on his lighter. "It's a candle", he said. "You may pass through the pearly gates" replied Saint Peter.
The second man pulled out a set of keys, shook them and said, "Bells." Saint Peter answered, "You may enter, also".
The last one searched desperately through his coat, finally pulling out a pair of women's panties.
St. Peter raised an eyebrow and asked, "And just what do those symbolize?" Number 3 replied, "These are Carols".
