Who Started Christmas?

Who Started Christmas?
(if you do not know the story, click on the title and read it.)

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:
getting that perfect gift for every single person,
overwhelming pressure to go to every party,
every housewarming,
taste all the holiday food and treats,
making sure we don't forget anyone.

Finally the elevator doors opened revealing a crowd in the car.

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.

Remember to keep Christmas in perspective.
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 HEART of the season.

Wise men still seek Him.

Wise women do too.
Peace on Earth and Good Will to All People.
