Welcome to Zero Dollar Christmas

Times are tough and many people are struggling to get by, barely. For some, this makes the holidays even more difficult than usual: how can you celebrate when every penny you have must go toward essentials, not gifts?

If you’re an adult, you might be happy to do without, as long as you have food to eat and a roof over your head. But what about children, especially the youngest ones who still believe in Santa Claus? How can you explain belt-tightening to a four-year-old who’s dreaming of brightly colored packages under the tree on Christmas morning?

That’s where Zero Dollar Christmas comes in. I believe there are still ways to exchange gifts or suprise a child during the holidays without spending a cent. The following posts will show you how.

    Hi! I just “stumbled” your site. (If you’re not familiar with StumbleUpon go to http://www.stumbleupon.com/) Hope your traffic goes up! Merry Christmas!

    Hi Ken, thanks for the Stumble — I appreciate it!

    I really hope to spread the idea of a Zero Dollar Christmas as widely as possible, since so many people are really hurting this year. Thanks for the encouragement!

    I know Christmas is over for 2008, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be any better in the coming year. I hope you will add to this blog over the coming months, and have some really great ideas posted by next November. Not that I don’t love all of these.
