Fw: Shopping story

       Who Started This Christmas Stuff?
       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 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 much better this whole world would be.
       Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season
