By December many toy drives already have the list of kids the toys are going to ready. Angel tree tags are already hung up and most of them already shopped for...
Seriously. We have very little money and my kids school is helping us this year. We request help in the beginning of Nov. with the school counselor. We wanted to find out how to get a little boost for the season since we would not be able to provide any substantial gift for our two kids this year. Aside from the help from the school I have been stocking up on Dollar store items all year long. If I have an extra buck- I got pick up a little toy or pack of stickers or something!
Why do people wait to the last minute to freak out and go looking for help? Christmas doesn't exactly sneak up on you!?

Mainly because throughout the yr with bills and such it's harder to put something aside. Take me for instance... Everything I make at my job goes towards rent, utilities, etc... And even though I never count on a bonus from my boss I have gotten one every yr, but this yr she gave it to me early so I could go back and forth out of state to see my mom in the hospital. To me Christmas is all a bunch of hype anymore and too commercialized. I am trying to make my son realize it's about family and being with those you love. Who cares if you get gifts... the gift is being with each other and being able to spend that time.
