Re: Who else has no presents for their kids tomorrow?
Tell them you will take them shopping in the sales following Christmas or in January when you get some money. Then you will get more bang for your buck and they reap the benefits with more stuff. Win/win. And start picking up things for them for next year at these sales and put them away for presents throughout the year.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1550123


If she didnt have the money before christmas she wont have it after. Just keep it simple and play with your kids.I grew up in a house of eight kids the littlest ones never recieved gifts.Its ok your not a bad mom.I couldnt afford christmas either.Havent since 2007 when I spent every dime I had for cancer treatment and unfortunately again this year for the same. The kids will understand trust me they love you YOU are thier greatest gift.

That's how it was in the USSR and is in America under Communism.

btw: my jew neighbor just got his 16 year old son a brand new Mustang Mach I--red....the kid is eleated.

So apparently not everyone is doing so poorly, but then again it is the damn-ed Jews who are responsible for you haveing no money.

It is they, via their Puppet Bare-Och Huesain Obama that has ruined the American Economy and drivin it into Communism against the wills of the people. Just so a few Chosen People can buy their kids brand new mustangs.

Anyway, hope they don't turn out like the kid in this video,

and Merry Christmas :-)

Those play set / forts ....especially the wood ones are over $1000 bucks and on up.
Is there some odd reason you can't build a fort for them out of your own time, sweat, and home depot materials?

Part of being a good parent is explaining the realities of life. Christmas should be about Christ. Maybe you should be more involved with a local church.

christmas for me is about the friends, family, and children. I can guarantee, if christ does turn out to be waiting for me in the afterlife, he would be appreciate my outlook.

if christ did turn out to give me shit he would prove himself to be a selfish conceited ass.

How many years have you been offering this play set/fort to your children?

How cruel of you to bring their hopes up only to crush them. (again this year)

I doubt they have asked for this gift. If they have, you should've been honest and told them you can't afford it.


I think you're after a hand-out.

Christ, leave OP alone. We all can't lavish our kids with expensive designer brand gifts. Everyone's situation is different. Some people can't find work and have a lot of bills to pay. Food, rent and bills in my opinion come first before presents.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30766571


Thats a whole lot different than OPs post.
OP is saying no gifts for the kids because there is no play set/fort AGAIN this year.Many kids donr have an expensive play set but it sure doent mean they got no gifts.To many places that give free toys and clothing and bedding sets for any kid to not get something.
Maybe OP needs to figure out there are less expensive gifts to give kids.

Don't know if the OP drinks or smokes


But they ARE online. And internet connections aren't free as far as I'm aware


Christmas doesn't happen on random dates. It's the same time each year, allowing the most broke parents to plan in advance and save a few dollars per week

A parent who's concerned enough about having no presents on Christmas Eve has had months to figure it out and cancel their internet connection in order to put aside money for the kids' Christmas


I read a story written by a very old woman, the daughter of a rural pioneer. After chopping wood, carting buckets of water to the vegetable garden, washing clothes by hand, making all the family's food from scratch, raising chickens, milking the cow, clearing the land, patching a wattle and daub shack and birthing and nursing children all day every day, the old lady said her mother had made all their Christmas presents by hand from mattress ticking -- using just needle and thread by candle-light while sagging with exhaustion

Do they still make parents like that any more? Will the OPs children remember their parent/s making such sacrifices

or will they remember neglectful parents who hunched over a computer screen and phone all day in order to escape their reality ?


Christmas doesn't have to mean store-bought presents. It could mean a humble picnic at a park or free playground with parents who're actually interested in interacting with their children

and parents who genuinely interact with their children are able to explain to kids the facts of life, the situation with family finances and make it ok for those kids

Lots of families give up their own Christmas day in order to volunteer their time and energy to the less fortunate, thus teaching kids to give rather than 'get', and in the process those children forget about 'presents' and take pride and joy in sharing their day with those who really are less fortunate than most of us

Drive behind a mall or store and get some free boxes. Kids usually love a great box fort more than the presents anyway. Tape them together, cut out windows, let them decorate it. Even better you have the fort all ready to go for them. hf

I don't understand how that happens, no gifts on Christmas.

Dollar Stores are everywhere. Coloring books, construction paper, crayons, markers..even reading books for almost nothing. I know a lot of people that are doing that this year.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Op, your kids will remember.

I remember one year I was about 10 and I didn't get gifts. Mom was sick, had to travel for treatment, so I had to stay at my Dad's house.

It was delivery pizza for Christmas dinner. Not very festive, hardly any remnants of Christmas except for a small tree with a few ornaments I put together.. No gifts that year.

I didn't vocalize how upset I was, but it was a real let down. I just wanted something, anything, to act like a token for the holiday from my dad; a little token of thoughtfulness and love. The next day Dad took me to the store and bought me some boots. I pretended that was my Christmas present.

Give your kids SOMETHING for Christmas. Even if its cheap, its much better than nothing. Show them you thought of them.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 14577918


(I'm a lurker.) I don't have gifts for my kids. I probably could have taken some money and bought a few things, but I'm finally irritated enough that Christmas is so commercialized that I decided not to buy anything. I don't want to buy shit for my kids just because society dictates that I must do so. I'd rather buy them things when they need it and when I can afford it.

So this year, I cheerfully told them I'm not buying Christmas gifts but I explained that we would have fun making food and playing games.

My kids are a little older than yours, but I've had to explain the facts of life to various kids at younger ages from time to time, and I learned that kids are smarter than we think and more resilient than we realize. Also, it's all about your attitude towards the "problem."

One of my older daughters said to me once, "You made poor seem like so much fun." (We were always out of money and food when I was going to school but stupidly procreating at the same time.)

So make this "fun" for them.
