    Above or Below Average for Christmas Spending?

    Read an article where Americans spend an average of $361 on Christmas gifts. Are you below or above the average for this year?! I am a bit above it... Merry Christmas to all!

    You know I felt rather perplexed when I read that amount! :convinced: Shucks, while I personally do not have little ones, I can only imagine the cost of electronic toys these days! The article did not say that it was per person, I took it for the entire budget! Hmmmmmmm me thinks it isn't very realistic in today's economy. Merry Christmas to all!

    BTW just to clarify all those items for Sophie aren't only from me. Some are from the grandparents and Santa.

    To answer the actual question here, I think I spend right around average or a little more- not completely sure though...

    Sorry it is Cached but it wouldn't let me take it off, some sort of error.

    According to this page it is $935, which sounds more realistic.
