Dreaming of a tight Christmas: Tips to keep kids happy when money is scarce

Leave a comment

Young Laura’s holiday prospects looked bleak. Her family was poor and the budget was non-existent. But when Christmas came she was overjoyed with Santa’s gifts of a tin cup, a stick of candy, a sugared cake and a penny.That was fine and well for Laura Ingalls in her little house on the prairie in the 19th Century, but is it possible for children in a 21st Century recovering economy to have a happy Christmas morning? Do parents need to keep up the same levels of material gift-giving now that the economy is precarious and jobs have been lost and incomes tightened?
