Anyone here that won't be having Christmas this year?

I can't even afford a tree! Am I the only one?

  • No you are not the only one. I cant afford really anything of christmas. I have 5 kids and its getting stressful. I had to sign up at the toysfortots this year I never had to do that before. I dont know if we are getting a tree either. Cuz my fiance job cut down and I stay at home with my kids. I want to work but its hard to just pay for daycare. I hope for everyone to have a good christmas. All I want is my children to be happy. No matter what. I might have to pawn my rings just to get them a little something. I hope the best for you and your family. Happy holidays!

  • We're not buying each other anything for Christmas. I'm due with my first baby on the 20th next month and we're focusing all of our attention on her this year. If people want to buy us stuff, yay go them, but nobody is expecting us to buy anything for them in return lol.

  • We are doing Christmas, but the only way we are doing it is because a few orgs. are helping us out. Otherwise we would not be able to do much of anything at all.

  • Always try Craigslist sometimes people give alot of nice things away on there. I see alot of Christmas trees on there every year.

  • We are having a good Christmas this year because my husband was blessed with a really good job but the past couple of years were really tight, my kids got a lot of dollar store items.
