It just seems that in this economy, more families would be frugal and teach their kids the real meaning of the holidays (giving thanks, helping others, etc). I even over heard a conversation in my Sunday school class (4-5 year olds) that went like this:
girl: my parents said I can only ask for 4 things this Christmas.
boy: you are only getting 4 things!!!!
My daughter is in the same Sunday school class. She didn't say a thing. I'm only getting her one thing for Christmas (Snow White movie) and a stocking. And then we are volunteering in a food drive next week and feeding the homeless at the shelter when it gets closer to Christmas. I would rather save the money so that she has fun things to do throughout the year.
One of my coworkers told me she is buying her 8 year old son a dirtbike, an Iphone and a webcam for Christmas!!! Seriously!
