The children who are poor take what they get and show pride in it because it comes from the heart rich kids are spoiled and are not as thankful for what they have...A poor child will show more love for 1 small gift than a rich kid will for 100...It's all about how much love goes into what you give...
I'm not sure what you're suggesting- are you saying that only rich people can have a good Christmas or that poor people can't celebrate Christmas?<br />
Most poor people get help from churches and food drives. I know Christmas Eve I'll be outside with my church's truck handing out bikes and toys.
Poor kids get oranges and nuts in their stockings.
******* YOU. What do you think this is. You go forth and better your self child. Move quickly , the wolves are after you and they are hungry tonight.
the poor are more creative and have GREAT christmases, thankyouverymuch.
Christmas isn't about expensive presents. I've seen enough happiness from one friend to another just by receiving a home made card. :o)
Actually, I don't think that the person was asking a mean question, he or she or it was just curious.<br />
For your information, when I was a child, my father was chronically unemployed due to the recession in the 1980s. We were outwardly middle class, but we were very poor. We couldn't afford to replace cheap shoes that had holes in them when I was a child, and had to take care not to walk too much so they need replacing. This was the 1980s and people had been very rich prior to that, but my family never got very rich. My parents were not Christians and do not believe in Christmas.<br />
So as a poor kid, I can answer your question. Poor children had no Christmas. It is very very very sad and very very heartbreaking but it is true. I had no Christmas as a child and didn't know what it meant. We had no turkey, no cards, no relatives visiting, nothing. We definitely had no present and did not dream of presents. It was just another day being poor and frugal.<br />
However, I saw when I visited my grandma that along the way, there were some houses that were lit up and there were people there, and they had great beautiful music like it was fairytale. It was Christmas music.<br />
That was all. We had no Christmas but other people - the upper-class rich Christians had Christmases.......it was very captivating.<br />
But for us, we had no Christmas. It was just a normal day. But the Christmas music made it special. There was a little bit of Christmas spirit when we passed by the homes of Christians.<br />
I think as a poor non-Christian kid, Christmas seemed to be a very special day of love and celebration, but I wasn't lucky to be born in such a family. So I have no Christmas and accepted that.

i realy hate this verse i suggest tht not only rich people poors also can celebrate Christmas .Money is not christmas if some one wants to celebrate christmass they would celebrate it spiritualy...not with MONEY
Christmas is really about what you do for other people, not what you BUY them. A good deed can go a looooooong way.
Poor people are that way because they've made poor choices over the course of their lives. I feel for their children, but it's up the the parents to make a good Christmas. Your question presupposes that presents need to cost money to have meaning. The best presents I've ever gotten came from the heart, not from a store.
Rich people spend money on their kids, poor people love them. Big difference. My parents couldn't afford much when I was little, But they did what they could and they loved us. I saw how hard my father worked to take care of us and I grew up respecting him. And now my son has grown up knowing that although I can't lavish him with material goods, I love him to death and would do anything for him. So the reality is that Christmas is more for the poor people, because they understand the true meaning of Christmas and giving from the heart.
your view of Christmas is skewed, Christmas is not supposed to be about presents and who has more, go to your library, do some research, then come back and ask something that means something
we're not privileged enough to celebrate in the material things like the "haves" .... but we are equally privileged to celebrate Jesus who is the reason for the season. Amen ? Amen. Celebration of Christmas with gifts for our children can be challenging, but what I did this year was contact a local church to see if they could help with some gifts. At the moment, we are behind on rent and other bills.. and had to visit the salvation army to get food in the house. Life is what it is.. and the only disappointment is when people kick you when you are already down ... ie .. late fees ... especially this time of year it's not fun getting a 3 day eviction notice on your door. Where is the charity ?
I am a father of two and this time of the year really sucks. I work and even work overtime when I can but it doesn't go very far after paying doctor bill after doctor bill. Yes, constant flow of doctor bills and still have the same problem. Add that to the needs of the older cars we have and Christmas can be VERY depressing!
