This Christmas is very difficult for my family. I got hurt at work and my supervisor dropped my hours hoping I would quit. Is anyone else having a difficult Holiday season?

I will pray for your family as well;) The Holidays make times worse. I signed them up for the angel tree but unfortunately the cut off age is 14;( my oldest is 16.

I don't really think we're having a hard Christmas, but we don't spend a lot on Christmas no matter what. This year I'm making a lot of the gifts I give out. That helps with funds a little.

Mine is tough too. Finally getting my financial situation back on track from the divorce. The biggest gift for my DD is a room painted and set up as a play room for her and brother. They will get some toys but I am mostly getting that room ready with stuff. Definitely not spending very much! Maybe $150 total. The paint I got was mis-tinted so was 50% off. And furniture is getting rearranged in the house so I can put some in that room. :)

I guess I always see Christmas isn't about the gifts, but it is really about wholesome family time celebrating the birth of Jesus.  I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with your family.  And, I hope life becomes less stressful for you.
