A woman was Christmas shopping with her two children..  After many hours of
  walking down row after row of toys and after hours of hearing both her
  children asking for everything they saw on those many shelves, she finally
  made it to the store elevator with her two children in hand.
  She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday season time of
  the year,  getting that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping
  list, overwhelming pressure to go to every party, every housewarming, taste
  all the holiday food and treats, 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 revealing a crowd in the elevator.  She pushed
  her way in and dragged her two kids and all her bags of stuff in with her.
  As the doors closed she couldn't take it anymore and blurted out,
"Whoever started this whole Christmas thing
should be found, strung up, and shot."
  From the back of the car, a quiet calm voice responded,
"Don't worry, we've already crucified Him."
The rest of the trip down 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 would, just think how much better this world would be.
Jesus is the reason for the season
Wise men still seek Him
