Just curious. My family always goes overboard. We each easily take $700-$800 worth of spoils each Christmas morning. I realize that this is a lot, but we also don't give presents for much else, after 18 you don't really get birthday presents, we don't do Mother's Day gifts or anything else. Christmas is the only time we do gifts. So when I came home with $600 worth of gifts for my mom and brother today, I didn't think much of it. My roommate, however was floored at how much money I spent. I admitted, that while it was a lot, it's the only presents we buy throughout the year. It's like Christmas, birthday, Mother's Day, etc., all wrapped up in one holiday. When I asked her what she got her mother she responded with 'a DVD.' As in one. Single. DVD. For her mother. To top things off it was out of the $5 bin at Walmart. I don't have a filter, which does get me into trouble sometimes, and I responded with, "So in other words, you're giving your mother a slap in the face for Christmas." I don't think I would have said that, but I happen to know she didn't give her mom anything for her birthday or Mother's Day either. And it's not like she doesn't have the money, she totally has the money. Anyway, that made her mad, I don't really blame her, I probably shouldn't have said it, and it probably would have made me mad too. This experience got me thinking. I'm certain my family probably spends above average on Christmas gifts, and I'm certain she spends far less than average, but I'm just curious as to how much everyone else out there does for Christmas.
