A mum’s controversial decision to charge her family members £30 each for Christmas dinner has actually been applauded. After spending a staggering £500 a few years ago, She made the bold decision to demand money from her three kids, their partners and her four grandchildren.
They have happily accepted the idea and actually help plan the Christmas lunch to suit their tastes.
During an interview, she said: “A few years ago when I bought my Christmas meal for Christmas Day I spent around £500. I couldn’t even shut my fridge.
“I was catering for everyone. I overspent. Cost of living has gone up horrendously over the years. The family grew, I got more and more grandchildren, my son and daughters had partners. It got too much.
“We sat down and discussed it. They were happy.”
She further stated that it was far cheaper than going out for Christmas dinner and was more relaxing for those with young children.
