    Default How much money did you spend on Christmas?

    Happy Christmas to one an all.

    It's Christmas time and that means a lot of different things to us all. For some it will be the vindication of the counch potato lifestyle with lots of TV and snacks

    Some say Christmas has become far too commercial and this takes the magic we all felt when we were young away but maybe it's always been like this for adults.

    One thing for sure, Christmas hurts the wallet and no doubt when you go back to Work you will hear all the stories about how much it all cost. But it doesn't have to be this way or does all the present buying make it for you?

    For me I keep it simple with a spend limit on presents of $30.00 and I have agreed with my siblings not to buy gifts for each others children, as they have way too much already. That certainly helps keep the costs down.

    So, How much did you spend on Christmas or have you taken another less commercial route?

    LOL, I used to spends upwards of a €1000 on presents alone. Then I woke up to the commercialism of it and just bought small more meaningful gifts. The gifts that keep on giving

But it's Christmas eve, my youngest is hyper, and we're heading for breakfast , the brass band will be playing in town and everyone will be in top form. It all seems worth in for the day that's in it today and for tomorrow. Santy as his passing will thrown down new pjs for the kids, wrapped in brown paper, will a Little corner burnt and soot on the paper. Isn't it great what children believe in. Happy Christmas eve to all , enjoy the day and try not and panic buy!

    It's just reopened, as the Mad Monk. My first drinking pub! We used to in there in our school uniform and when I turned 18 I was refused a drink! Didn't go in there for two years after.
