How Many Gifts Do Your Kids Get?

Christmas is rapidly approaching, and presents are probably piling up underneath the tree. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far? Social media says: when the pile of presents is as tall as the tree!

Emma Tapping posted a picture to Instagram last week showing 300 gifts stacked to the ceiling. Since then, people have been slamming the mother of three, calling her “delusional” and “materialistic.”

Tapping told a British talk show host she works hard to save money for Christmas.

“I do all of the sales,” she said. “Anything that’s store price I refuse to pay for. And I do it all year round to make sure my kids have the best Christmas they can have.”

“How long have you been doing this?” asked the host. “I mean there is a gargantuan amount of presents there.”

“It’s always been this way,” Tapping replied. “My family, we’ve always had big Christmases. And I do this every year, and I think that’s why my friends on Facebook are asking ‘What’s the big deal?'”
