Mom Sparks Heated Debate After Saying She Charges Her Family $40 Each For Christmas Dinner

Um... thoughts?

Christmas dinner is as big a party of the holidays as Santa and a tree and all the gifts. After all, many of us spend weeks planning out the menu and shopping and researching new recipes online, all in the hopes of making a Christmas dinner that’s special for everyone.

I mean, who doesn’t love to see all their friends and family gathered around the Christmas dinner table enjoying the holidays together? OK, in reality we know that Christmas dinner is almost as stressful as doing all that Christmas shopping.

Not only do we spend weeks planning the menu and doing the shopping and braving the crazy grocery store crowds just to hope that everything will be perfect, we normally spend a small fortune in the process.

I don’t have family around me where I live but even to cook a traditional Christmas dinner for my family of six costs me a small fortune, and when I was hosting for extended family it was even more. Then you have to add in the alcohol if you have a family that likes to enjoy a few cocktails along with dessert, the cost of your typical Christmas dinner can really add up.

One mother decided to do something about the high cost of preparing a Christmas dinner for her extended family by charging everyone a price per plate. While some people think it’s a great idea, others think it’s completely wrong.
