Some of these questions on here...

I can't believe some of the comments from people about receiving "junk" for Christmas, or not wanting to accept help if they are down on their luck because of not wanting their kids to get cheap "crap". Whatever happened to the Christmas spirit, and it being the thought that counts?? Some people should be very ashamed of themselves....

Does this bother anyone else?

  • It does bother me. I would rather have a cheap gift with love and thought rather than something expensive out of obligation.

  • LittleBirdFly: I don't mean an exact question. I just read some of the replies and they bother me really bad. I always love to give things to kids who aren't likely to get other things for Christmas, and I would certainly hope people wouldn't think it's cheap garbage.

  • Greed has taken over Christmas. Some have forgotten the reason for the season.

  • No one forces families to take charity. I say if they don't like it, leave it. BUT, I also try to donate nice things. I don't think just because a child is low income they should get a cheap dollar store piece of crap and do cartwheels over it...when the kids around them have nice things, or popular things. I don't run out and donate a Wii, but I don't go to the dollar store either.
