    Remebering Why Christmas Is Celebrated...

    A woman was out Christmas shopping with her two children. After
    many hours of looking at row after row of toys and everything else
    imaginable, and hearing both her children asking for everything
    they saw on those many shelves, this woman finally made it out of
    the store and 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, get
    that perfect gift for every single person on our shopping list,
    make sure we don't forget anyone on our card list, and the pressure
    of making sure we respond to everyone who sends us a card. Not to
    mention, getting the kids everything they ask for.

    Finally the elevator doors opened--there was already a crowd in
    the car. This woman pushed her way into the car and dragged her
    two kids in with her, along with all her bags of stuff.

    When the doors closed, she let out a big sigh and decided she
    couldn't take it anymore, saying out loud, to no one in particular,
    "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be arrested and
    strung up!"

    From the back of the elevator, a quiet calm voice responded,
    "Don't worry ma'am, I believe they crucified Him."
