Family Holidays with Less, by Dr. Brad SchwallDr. Brad Schwall

The bad economy does not have to hurt your family holiday spirit.  Families are having to cut back financially this holiday season, but they don't have to cut back on fun or quality time together.  Children are rewarded more with attention and fun as a family than money or gifts.

Fun times

  • Have a holiday movie night with popcorn, cookies, and hot chocolate
  • Have a game night
  • Take a drive to look at Christmas lights
  • Let your children decorate cookies
  • Make things together
  • Plan activities together, plan activities everyone enjoys

Good gifts

  • Give things you need or have been wanting
  • Give a family vacation or special outing as a gift
  • Small gifts can be fun gifts
  • Have your children make cards and gifts

Thoughtful celebrations

  • Plan a menu - homemade food costs less than prepared foods
  • Create a fun, festive atmosphere with music and lighting

Giving and gratefulness

  • Get children involved in choosing gifts for others and make it fun
  • Do a service project together
  • Be thankful for what you have
