  • I have no idea! I'd guess 600 to 700 total. But I really don't have a clue what the statistic on that is.

  • We are not Christian, so we don't have to spend any money on Christmas.

  • I'm pretty cheap so we usually only spend about 250 for everyone and that's including our 3 kids.

  • I AM a Christian and I think people should spend as little or as much as they can or like.


    I can celebrate the birth of the Creator of the Universe with as little as 10 dollars if I need to, because he loves me if I can't spend any at all.


    Merry Christmas!

  • We spend around $3000 or so. It isn't all gifts for us though! I do a lot of "small" giving...toys for tots, angel trees, food pantry... My boys really enjoy the giving aspect of Christmas. I am very thankful my family is able to give the way we do.
