Last weekend was the start of Christmas Shopping for myself and Mrs Mikron. We spent the day in crowded shops, fighting our way through the press of bodies, securing this years must-have toys and gadgets for our grandkids.

At one point, we split up, I needed to go to the cash machine to get some money. I walked to the end of the street where the bank was. Of course, there was a big long queue. My heart sank, but I settled down for a longish wait.

The line moved slowly. Step by step I got closer. At last, I was only second-in-line. But the chap in front seemed to be having some trouble.

“Oh bugger!”

“What is it, mate?” I said.

“I think the machine has run out of cash”

Typical! Still, not unexpected this time of year, I suppose.

Behind me a voice called out “Hey, what’s the hold up?”

“No money!” said the chap in front.

“What?”

“ NO MONEY!” he shouted back.

This caused a stir.

“You hear that? There’s no money! NO MONEY!”

People started pushing and shoving. A fight broke out. People were shouting.

“There’s NO MONEY!! Our cards are worthless! The system has collapsed! It’s ALL OVER!”

There were now people fighting and rolling around in the street. Blood everywhere.

Next thing I knew there was a tremendous sound of smashing glass, as two people came through a shop window, gouging and biting at each other. A car went out of control and ploughed into a group of people who had also stated fighting. Everywhere people were screaming that their money was worthless.

A woman appeared at an upstairs window and started throwing her gold and silver into the streets.

The sky suddenly filled with lightning, and the buildings all around seemed to simultaneously burst into flames. More vehicles in the street went out of control, and then suddenly a great fissure opened in the ground and people and children and dogs and ladies on bicycles and 50’s –style American cars started falling into it.

I noticed that some people near me fell to the ground as their eyes started rotting in their sockets, I could just about hear what they were saying, it was truly pitiful, their anguish:

“Why , oh, WHY didn’t we listen to Jehovah’s Witnesses when they called? We were too proud and wicked!”

Another chap further down the street was calling out. He has a serious head wound from some sharp implement – and he also had the eye-rotting thing. His teeth, though, looked fine. I could see he was gnashing them, so it was a bit difficult to make out what he was saying, but it sounded like:

“ I was too stiff-necked to listen to the message! I always knew Christmas was a Babylonish false religious festival, but I allowed my wickedness to blind me to the truth! Oh, for a Watchtower!”

This astonishing scene of devastation was playing itself out in front of me, and I had just about counted a thousand at my left hand and ten thousand at my right hand who had perished, when all of a sudden, the fellow who had been at the front of the queue said:

“Oh, no - wait a minute! I was keying in the wrong PIN number. It’s perfectly okay, after all!”

The skies cleared and the fighting died down. People’s eyes seemed to clear up and various groups of folk were standing up and brushing each other’s clothing off. People were smiling and wishing each other Merry Christmas.

The line reformed and we stood around watching the arrival of the emergency services moving in to deal with the casualties.

I got my cash and rejoined my wife, and we went to the carol service at our local church.

There is a great lesson to be learned from this........

And very interesting story Mikronboy. I try to stay away from Walmart this time of the year. People are so very rude for some reason. ;)

I got an idea. You can use one of the newly installed ATMs in some of our JW facilities. You only need to pay a small ATM usage fee and give a free voluntary donation.

In the meantime you will be surrounded by all sorts of kind and loving people who want nothing more than to clear your mind of any thoughts and replace it with a program of Watchtower study.

These JW people are the only good people since everybody else is deceived by Satan and his evil trickery.

Good morning Karen. I think it is available but I have stacks of books I am trying to read, I usually do not take on more. I know several magazines are at the church counter and at least one is online.

Let me guess, you saw these movies...

A Thief in the Night is a 1972 Christian end times film produced by Russell S. Doughten. It is the first and best known film in Doughten's four-part series on the Rapture and Second Coming of Christ. The films together are often referred to collectively as the "Thief" or "Rapture" series.

Very glad to be free of the Xmas frenzy. Someone said buy online not if you want a cheap rip off copy of what you actually wanted!

The online fraudsters love this time of year grabbing people who are simply desperate to give their child the no 1. Listed toy as a Xmas present so their child can gloat and show off to his friends back at school.

Anyone that has done counter sales at this time of year can tell you it doesn't have to be a faulty ATM to cause mayhem but simply irate and desperate shoppers.

When did celebrating this false fake plastic light-up event become more important than food and clothing our kids for the rest of the year?

Thank you for that answer. There was an article in one, it is called The Baby Blanket. In this story she mentions her son and his wife starting a bible study with a witness group and I was wondering if you found that to mean Jehovah's Witness group. They did not stay with this group, but went to a bible believing church and it changed their lives. I love these books with all the stories in them. They have some nice recipes as well.:) Blessings to you and yours.

Yeah, this is a great time of year to pump ourselves up with all sorts of self-righteousness.

I'm gonna go to the mall, sit on a bench and watch all these desperate, irate, fake and fraudsters make me feel better about my self-righteous pathetic little life.

This is such a great time to judge others that I simply cannot choose to just not celebrate quietly. I have to point out how imperfect everybody else is cause its boosts me up.

I'm really pumped.

Oh, and I can do some door-to-dooring since I know people will be at home.

The after christmas sales are great too. Half-off almost everything.

Obviously you have little experience with online shopping. If you have actually shopped online, it must have been Craigslist.

whether you do it quietly or frenziedly (note we are still in October and talking about a celebration still months away) it doesn't change it is based on lies pagan traditions and gods and promotes greed and over-drinking and over-eating! And worshiping a cartoon image based on a coca cola advert.

It is simply a false modern and ancient pagan event that is not acceptable to Jehovah. That you deliberately do it 'quietly' shows you already accept some basic unpalatable realities to it.

quite the contrary very familiar with online shopping and the fact people bypass the safety features on various sites to get the "top if the trees" gift usually the latest Xbox, wii, ds, playstation etc and get badly stung!

Wow, you could be an Al Queida type operative. Go on a jihad against those who celebrate christmas, new years, easter and the other holidays.

You can justify anything you want by convincing yourself
"THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE TO JEHOVAH!"

I think judging others is what is unacceptable to God.

OK Caleb, in regards to your little warrior wizard doll...
"THAT'S UNACCEPTABLE TO JEHOVAH!"

Now you don't want to make Jehovah sad now do you?
