My husband was remarking to me last night about how shocked he was the first Christmas he spent with me as to how many gifts we had piled around on Christmas morning. He was brought up in a religious household that thought that going to church was more important than gifts and not many were bought. In my household spoiling children with lots of gifts was the norm. We now have a compromise where we tend to give the children a nice pile of gifts but do not buy much for each other, if anything at all. There might be a P.R.S. that we are after that we save for Christmas but normally we buy what we need through the year and so do not need things at Christmas. We still all get very exciting, have a fantastic meal and enjoy visiting our family but do not overspend.
