  • Emotionally it sucks because my father was killed in a car accident on Thanksgiving and Christmas marks the one month anniversary of his death. Plus he was a big part of Christmas.
    Financially it hasn't been bad because I used my first paycheck on gifts and we didn't need to use the credit cards for anything.

    Here's to hoping next year is a lot better.

  • Better financially and a emotionally. I was even able to help provide a Christmas for my niece who is with my parents and they couldn't afford to do much for her.

  • Well, every Christmas is amazing for me since I have the two best Guys in existence..but yes, it is WAY better financially. And my Husband has several days off from work so He is home for Christmas, unlike last that is definitely better! Either way, I am beyond blessed and thankful. Merry Christmas, hope your Holiday is almost as perfect as mine already is!

  • Better financially, but crappy emotionally. My dad is dying and this may be his last good Christmas and I am sick with a horrible cold. I don't think I should go for the festivities at my parents house, but my mom is insisting I go and wear a mask. I still think it is too much of a risk!

  • Worse financially--more bills to pay.
