    Here's a little bit of info about it. We just never ever should forget what Christmas REALLY is about. Not about presents or good food. Just the birth of Jesus Christ. The rest is just extra's.

    Christmas is about giving. God gave the world his son, his son gave us the atonement, so it is with a spirit of giving I lavish my children with gifts.

    ... it's also rude to assume people believe that's what Christmas is REALLY about. A celebration means what it means to the celebrator.

    I really have no idea how much we have spent as I buy things through out the year that I think DS will like, forget about them and then end up buying more heh. It is for this reason that I have containers of new toys and give bags and bags of new items to the wishing tree each year.

    I would think that we have spent around the $500 mark as there are no big ticket items this year just most items cost at least $50 each.

    I do not apologise for how much we spend. We can afford it, DS knows (as much as a 3.5 year old can) that Christmas is also about the birth of Jesus, family and giving to others who are not as fortunate as we/he is.

    wow i feel rather extravagant reading this thread!!!

    I have one daughter and i have spent around $1000 on her. I put money away all year so that i can buy what i like. I''m big on educational toys where possible and also buy any clothes shoes she may need.

    I have one big present from santa and a few smaller ones plus a stocking with books and other small toys.

    I also buy for my nieces and nephew - i love xmas seeing their faces when they open their presents.

    We have a big family lunch on xmas day then go see other family for xmas dinner (first time for years this year we have gone away on xmas day) and then we get together on boxing day with all the extended family. Its one of the few times we all get to catch-up.

    My sister spends around $500-$600 per child she has three.

    Christmas isn't just about Santa and getting presents, not in this house anyway! I don't want my children to grow up thinking like that. I'm not very religious, but to me, Christmas is about spending time with family and loved ones, and food

    About $200 from us, and nothing from Santa. We got her an iTouch for $164 and a could of little toys and tshirt. I'm so glad we didn't get much, my inlaws have spent way to much on toys very similar to what she already has at home...

    Christmas means different things to different people. To some is it gifts, others religion and for me it is a time to spend with loved ones. There is no right or wrong way to celebrate Christmas - lets not turn this into a 'what is Christmas really about' thread. This is a how much do you spend on gifts thread.

    We spent $200 each on santa and $150 each from us. Normally santa is only $150 each but this year they are getting a Wii with the kit and kaboodle

    ... it's also rude to assume people believe that's what Christmas is REALLY about. A celebration means what it means to the celebrator.
    Agreed. I'm atheist so clearly xmas has nothing to do with god or jesus for me. But it'sa time where we be with both sides of the family, we eat lots of yummy food and spoil our kids - thru the year the kids get what they need, at xmas it's stuff they want.

    Just bc it's not about jesus to us doesn't make xmas any less special or fun.
