This was told in church this last Sunday, so I'm taking liberties to share it.

A woman with several young children was trying to do her Christmas shopping, but was getting more and more frustrated with trying to control her kids and with the large crowds. In an elevator, while shifting one child from her right hip to the left and trying to pick up another one, she muttered, "If I ever find the person who created this holiday, I'll shoot him."

A voice in the back came forth, "Sorry, lady, but they already crucified Him 2000 years ago.

Maybe a little too sappy, but poignant, nonetheless.
