Oh boy, can I understand! I was in your shoes once and that is a path I never want to go down again. There was a point that I had to file bankruptcy but I chose Chapter 13 over 7 because it leaves less of a mark on your record. It's like admitting failure to not be able to pay back the money that is owed. It can get you into a funk (depression) that is for sure. We had so little money that I had to resort to buying things at the dollar store for kids, but you know what? They thought that was the coolest Christmas ever! So I strongly believe, it's not about
what you get for Christmas, it just the fact that you are TOGETHER that makes a Christmas special.
I don't know how old your kids are but if they are younger, I'm sure just a little something (even from the dollar store) should be good but if they're older, than they will probably understand.
