Yes, the financial condition this year definitely made me decide to cut on my holiday gifts. I'm doing everything to save on the gifts I'm going to give out this year and also I'm trying to cut the list of the names I'm going to give gifts.

Yes, I haven't started my shopping yet but I have had to cut extended family members that I have usually purchased gifts for. This year it is only immediate family.

Yes. Last year I had given a lot of gifts to my friends and extended family members but now I only choose the ones that are really close to me. It's better that way.

I haven't made any major holiday purchases as of yet but I do think the current financial crisis will affect my holida spending habits. I plan to buy the same items as before for my family and friends, but I will probably cut back on my own purchases slightly. Honestly, it is not a big concern to me because I have a very steady grip on my finances and have budgeted accordingly!
