The couple, looking tired and overburdened from the many things they had to do to prepare for the holiday, scrambled onto the crowded elevator at the department store, trying (with only partial success) not to drop any of their packages. As the elevator door closed, the husband let out an exasperated sigh and said, "Whoever invented Christmas ought to be shot."
From the back of the elevator, a quiet voice said, "Don't worry. We already crucified Him."
It was a mighty quiet ride down to the first floor.
