Cheap Dates One - 'Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree'

Instead of your money going to a corporate profit, it will help a special interest group, such as those who support military families.

Cheap Dates Nine - 'Away in a Manger'

For many kids, this Christmas will not be spent in a ‘crib’ or a ‘manger’, but in a hospital bed. Instead of spending more money on each other this year, and for items neither of you really need, take that allotment of money, and buy gifts for sick children. Wrap them in bright paper, and deliver them to children in the hospital. For an added treat, rent a ‘Santa and Mrs. Claus’ costume, and dress in style as you two bestow, “tidings of great joy.” This is another of those cheap dates that neither of you will ever forget.
