One mom has spoken out this week against parents who say pricey gifts come from Santa …
It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Waking up extremely early on Christmas day to see what Santa has brought.
There’s a lot to love about the holiday season …
It is time to be spent with family, friends, and loved ones, eat good food, and exchange gifts – even if it might look a little different this year.
Of course, the decorations play a huge part in the festivities.
We live for spending hours decorating the Christmas tree and hanging up all kinds of festive ornaments in our homes.
Including that fabulous tree!
There’s nothing like spreading some Christmas magic across your home.
But that’s not all …
What about the food?
Christmas is all about a big feast of delicious foods…
And, usually, there’s so much left over, you end up still eating it days later.
But of course, there’s one other special aspect of Christmas …
Most childrens’ favorite part of the day!
But the gift buying process can be stressful for some parents.
Worrying about if they’ve bought enough or will they like them.
It’s also a pricey pursuit …
And can take saving all year round in order to afford.
Which leads to problems.
Wealth inequality around the world means kids never quite get the same amount of treats as each other.
This can lead to sadness and disappointment.
If kids believe they aren’t receiving pricey gifts because they haven’t been good enough over the year, well, that sucks.
And one mom has had enough.
So she has reached out to parents everywhere.
She’s offered a plea to the internet.
Asking parents to stop saying their kids pricey gifts came from Santa …
She says expensive gifts should not be labeled as coming from Santa.
“Cause some families can’t afford that,” social worker Megan Dunn explained.
And that just isn’t fair!
“Breaks my heart for the parents and the kids.”
She offered a solution, too.
“Santa didn’t buy that iPad; Momma or Daddy did. Leave the less expensive gifts from Santa.”
What do you think of her viewpoint?
