View Full Version : Whoever started this whole Christmas thing...

This morning I heard a story on the radio of a woman who was out
Christmas shopping with her two children. After many hours of
looking at row after row of toys and everything else imaginable. And after
hours of hearing both her children asking for everything they saw on those
many shelves, she finally made it to the elevator with her two kids. She
was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of the
year. Overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming,
taste all the holiday food and treats, getting that perfect gift for every
single person on our shopping list, making sure we don't forget anyone on our
card list, and the pressure of making sure we respond to everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened and there was already a crowd in
the car. She pushed her way into the car and dragged her two kids in with
her and all the bags of stuff. When the doors closed she couldn't take it
anymore and stated, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be
found, strung up and shot."

From the back of the car everyone heard a quiet calm voice respond,
"Don't worry we already crucified him." For the rest of the trip
down the elevator it was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop.

Don't forget this year to keep the One who started this whole
Christmas thing in your every thought, deed, purchase, and word. If
we all did it, just think of how different this whole world would be.

Nice find, puts a little more meaning behind it. Kind of spoils my Baa Hum Bug!
