Now that we are into the full-fledged Christmas spending season, what would best describe your Christmas spending this year
I will spend less
I'll spend about the same
I will spend more

Why does it sound like from your recent posts that you are doing market research?

I enjoy getting input and people talking. Is there a problem with that?

At least he has WAY better topics then the current resident trlollolala MErk....

The market research sounded a bit different.....
Also they did give updates and on-the-fly statistics

The last couple of years, we have traveled for Christmas, so most of our "Christmas" spending goes to that. All in all, about the same. around $100 each for the son, daughter and wife. The rest is for travel.

How so. If you spent 2.00 last year and plan to spend 1.00 or 3.00 this year it covers it. It could also cover it if you spent $ 2,000 last year and plan on spending more or less. Who said you had to answer the question?

All our family is done with useless consumerist spending. Odd gifts here/there across all family/friends. Might spend a whopping $200 total. We just enjoy Christmas eve all together over good food, good wine and good times. Then on Christmas day we have a nice meal with family. That's it.

There's a place in this world for idle curiosity.

The "sample size" (those who respond on this thread) will be so tiny as to be worthless.

We're going to spend about the same. A misleading answer at best because we don't spend much to begin with.

Sort of like Stevie above.

I hate it (the commercialization) personally. Always did.

I love a good fruit cake and my maternal grandmother made them like no other. Does Collins Bakery use a lot of fruit and/or glaze on theirs?

Just my daughter only - I'll spend about $100-$150

I'll just re-wrap stuff I already own to add my tags to under the tree.

.

My ex-wife, however will use my child support money to buy each kid about $1000 worth (or more)
