Yes this is the time when budgets are forgotten. I feel so sorry for families with a number of children. I have written a couple of articles on remembering families or people less fortunate than ourselves.

We get so wrapped up in trivialities that we forget that christmas is a time of sharing. I often wonder what happened to the thought of christmas instead of greed. Businesses out to make a buck hang the debts incurred by families, that cannot afford this added expense. Good helpful article thanks for sharing this

I too feel that Christmas has become too commercial, I know about families who tread Christmas because it's another opportunity to disappoint their children, it's hard enough to make ends meet and these greedy companies make parents feel inadequate. I hope this article gets to the people who need it most.
