    For me Christmas is about magic and love

    I haven't "brainwashed" almost 2 yr old DD but she has seen enough Christmas stuff on TV and she knows who the fat dude in the red suit is and she puts her hands on her belly and shakes it like a bowl full of jelly as she says "ho ho ho ho"
    It's magical
    Haha! This is us too ^^

    I think its around $100 -$200 from us and the same from Santa. I buy during the year and stash big stuff at Mums and often lose count of how much I have spent.

    It obviously varies every year, but this year Santa = $200, Mum & Dad = $400

    We let Santa bring DS the "big present" (quad bike) & all the other books & toys are from us.

    I like the way the Dutch used to do the celebrating of Christmas. Celebrate Saint Nicolaas (Santa) on his birthday being the 5th of December.

    Then we had first Christmas day on the 25th and second Christmas day on the 26th to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
    We never used to give presents on Christmas day. That's what the 5th of December was for.

    Kids never got confused that way. They knew exactly what Christmas was about. It also helps that most of the schools in the Netherlands are either Christian or Catholic.

    What do the dutch celebrate on 25th if they celebrate JC birthday on 26th?

    It's like Easter Sunday and Monday. They just celebrate his birth on the 25th and have an extra day on the 26th. Here in Australia we have Christmas eve dinners on the 24th, whereas they do them on the 25th.

    In my circle I don't spend a lot of money but reading thriught the thread I feel like we spoilt her rotten lol

    Santa - $110ish including stocking fillers Santa only does 1-2 presents and sticking fillers

    Us - $300

    Dh- $75

    Me- $29 (+$150)

    We went over from the two previous years for her. This year we went and laybyed the $300 worth of stuff in July before her August birthday. It included a large present of a play kitchen. and three sets of dinner plates, food, and cake tins.
    Than dh saw a dora doll so brought that from him and I brought her wiggles tickets from me (that I lost so felt very guilty and brought another present)
    That was suppose to be it but once I got it out of laybuy nothing was small enough for her stocking and I couldn't decide what was to come from Santa out of the kitchen stuff and the kitchen was from us. Than she started talking more and got really into Santa that asked Santa for a dora guitar and Dora bike. I felt I should honor the Santa request since she now understood the Santa concept and she didn't get a day in any other presents if that makes sense

    Probably about $200 each this year, both Santa and us combined.
