We have angel trees. We picked up a child's wish list from one and various family members chipped in to buy the things on the list. I would rather do something like this than the traditional buying each other more stuff to collect.
for the past 40 years as I once was that child who people gave to because of our poverty
plus we give monthly to different charities
yes we normally purchase around 10 x $5 toys at K-Mart for small children and place them under the K-Mart tree
Every year me and my dad go on a big shop because he works in the mines in australia and gets almost $200000. Pa. And we just go to little kids shops and other shops like that then we go to the salvo stores and ask them if we could help anybody out and they give us names and addresses that people have signed up for and we go visit them and give them food and gifts its the best feeling in the world i remember on time i gave this little girl a barbie house with about six barbies and she looked at her mum and then me and just burst into tears and ran and jumped on me kissed me on the cheek and was my best friend for the hour i was there
It was the best thing in the world
You have a wonderful dad and he is a great man
It was good quality time i could spend with my dad
I have in the past. I don't do that anymore. I will give to friends in need that I know personally, but I don't donate to charity much anymore.
Or how about we dont give them anything? Kids do not need christmas, so we should be telling the parents not celebrate it.
Im still going to say no. Why make the kids believe something we know to be false, only to break their trust & innocence once they get older? Thats pretty messed up if you ask me. Why cant we just drop the santa and gift thing already? Are you people that brainwashed? Dont give the kids anything at all, instead you should give them food and materials for the harsh winter nights, not some stupid toy. Or instead you can do something more productive and actually work there or donate to others who really need it, like people in war torn countries.
Drop the toy and santa thing. Dont be that cynical to the children
Are you talking to me? If you are, are you drunk?
