We are having great Christmas Day. We have a small budget that we add to all year about $10 NZ a week and then everything we do for Christmas comes out of this budget. This includes close family members presents in the UK, Teresa's staff Christmas meal at the Mission Winery(we only had to pay for mine) and our presents.
For ourselves we limit mine and Teresa's presents to $20 each - I put it towards new racing tyres I'd been saving for and Teresa put hers towards the cost of a party dress. The children's presents for us are $10 or less. The children get larger presents from Grand parents and relatives.

This year we made mince pies (as always),Christmas crackers and we have meringue, berries and ice cream for dessert (it is hot in NZ at Christmas) and this year I made the meringues from our own eggs. I found some vegan ice cream. Next year I am going make the Christmas cake (a vegan one).

Cameron's Christmas party at Kindergarten. Our Christmas tree with the presents . Cameron's big wooden digger and Emily's new scooter.

Join the movement and we'll start a revolution - stop all unnecessary shopping - seperate your needs from your wants.
