This year, I reminded my children that Santa is not the only one who gives to them and that they really need to pay attention to how much things cost before they start asking for them. So, they are going to rewrite their holiday wish list with prices beside each item. I have found that a lot of times, once my children realize how much things cost, it changes their opinion of whether they really want it. I don't believe putting a price tag on Christmas takes any of the spirit out of it. It just creates an opportunity for you to really talk to your children about what is important at Christmas. Children need to be educated on how money works. We will start looking for sales on the toys that they want. We can see how much we can save on each item and maybe even save our relatives and Santa some money that they can use for others!
