One year when I was little there was no money either……we popped
popcorn and strung it on the trees outside to decorate and the birds
ate it. All we needed was a needle and some thread.
hung some of dads socks on a door, there were 4 of us girls……and we
only got switches in them that year…I remember mom saying we were
such bad little girls that Santa did not come.
That is a memory all 4 of us remember, not a good one.
So at least make some cookies, decorate them….
Maybe a time to tell the kids the ‘truth’ about ‘santa’…..and that
the holiday is about family love not ‘things’.
Perhaps where you live plan a neighborhood snowball fight and hot cocoa
Plan a neighborhood caroling party.
Make it a giving event instead of recieving, have them clean up older
toys they don;’t play with and donate to local groups collecting items.
Its about making memories as someone said earlier.
