Classy 97 Family Feud: Christmas Costs Too Much For This “Grinch”

From December 4, 2019

Dear Liza,
Can we talk about gifts? Neighbor gifts! Teacher gifts! Co-worker gifts! Christmas party gifts exchange gifts! It’s too much. I can’t do it. I have 5 children in school, plus piano teachers and dance teachers. I work in an office with 6 other women and my husband and I have been invited to 2 neighborhood Christmas gift exchange parties. All told, when I added it up, it’s 36 additional gifts. If I spend $10 on each of those … I’m broke! And life isn’t a cartoon. I can’t just ask all my kids teachers to join hands and sing a song. I’m going to be the only one that looks like the Grinch! I’m about to say FORGET CHRISTMAS and move to the top of Mt. Crumpit. What do you think I should do?
