    We have spent about 350 on ds - don't know ways from us and what's from Santa but he's 15 months so won't even care!

    Tragically I spent $750 just on presents for dd and about another $100 on Xmas clothes etc.
    I spent $500 on our foster child(14). I had a $500 budget for each child but went a bit overboard in July toy sales and laybyed so didn't count that in budget.
    I love Christmas!!!!

    Hubby has $500 in Harry Potter Lego... He is still a kid

    As for kiddies - I don't know... My head is too tired... I think about $1,200 but there is a play gym and a quad in that...

    Honestly, you don't sound accepting of her differences in the way she does things at all...you sound annoyed that she is different to you. Christmas can mean whatever people want it to mean...you want to focus on the religious aspect for your family and that's great....as atheists the religious part has absolutely nothing to do with it for us.
    Just let your friend be and accept her or don't but don't call yourself her friend if all you're going to do is bag her out on a public forum because of the way she does things.

    Now that Santa has arrived at the shops, she goes there each and every day and sits there for an hour while watching Santa having photos taken with kids and continuously saying:
    "That is Santa. Sannnnn-TA" "Santa buys lots of toys. T-oysssssssss for you".

    He's now almost 14 months and knows exactly who Santa is and what is in his bag. As soon as he sees Santa he goes "SSSSSantAAAAAA!!!" then he points at the bag and says "Tuh-oysssss!!!"
    Well if it ain't your child, don't worry about it.

    We have spent under $100 on ds. He's not getting Santa presents from us this year (will still get a stocking at our huge family Xmas do - from other people)

    He's 8.5 months old and is not going to know the difference.

    I totally stand by my crazy comment. Misschief said her friend spends an hour at a shopping centre every day staring at santa while constantly repeating "santa". An hour
    Every day. It's not some magical Christmas wonderland display; it's some old guy in a red suit at westfield.

    That conjures up a funny, but crazy image to me. She needs something else to pass her time.

    I don't have an amount i spend. It just depends what I canfind that DS will like. This year I think I I've spent under 200 all up. But last year it was nearly 500.
