Do you think your kids got too much, too little, or just enough for Christmas?

  • just right.

    we have never gone over board... ever. I dont see the good in spoiling children simply because it is a holiday. the joy of giving is what we focus on. each child gets to choose and give their sibling a special gift. they each get one from us and one from santa. that is 4 gifts... and they have never complained.

  • Too much! I do the same as Anon. My kids get one gift from us, one from Santa, and one from each sibling, which comes to four. That would be plenty, but then they get gifts from grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc., and it is just too much.

  • Would you believe I ask one of the children and he said he got too much! I could hardly believe my ears!

  • I am pregnant with my first child right now, but I watched my sister and brother-in-law and what they bought my nieces for Christmas. Its ridiculous. My nieces are 3 and 1 1/2 and they get so many toys its sickening. Half the toys probably won't even get played with. My niece will open a present, throw it to the side and go onto the next. It really breaks my heart because I know there are so many children out there that don't get anything for Christmas.
