Who Started Christmas?

~Who Started Christmas?~

 

This is a story I received and wanted to share.

I think it states the message well, as to what Christmas is all about.


There was a recent story on the radio about  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 the 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 in 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 elevator 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 this, just think of how different this whole world would be.

Roger ~ what a fabulous reminder of why we are actually celebrating at this time of year.  The commercialism has really done everything it could to disguise the true meaning.

I agree Dawn.  I'm all for gifts, but it's gotten way out of hand and most people do forget the real reason for the season.

Roger, What a wonderful post.  It is a great reminder for everyone.  Christ is the true reason for Christmas and so many people forget that.  I have suggested this post.


Merry Christmas!!

Do you need to "shake it up" or start from scratch?
