Can you afford Christmas this year?

I can't. I have been out of my "job" for 5 months. I recently started a business (www.sweetdesigninc.com) that is still in the red (not even made my first sale yet). I am taking tax preperation classes and hopefully will have a "job" for four months next year but it doesn't begin till Jan 1. I have a 16 year old daughter who needs clothes badly. We need grocery money, gas money, utility money and now for the past month they have been drastically cutting my child support money (taking it for fees for using thier services to collect money from ex). So things are tight to say the least. Anybody else out there hurting for finances for Christmas?

I have no idea how we are going to afford Christmas this year either. We always have bills to pay, and most of the money goes there. There isn't any extra money at all. I was thinking of working nights, but I will not get much sleep at all then, and I have 4 kids to care for everyday. I really wish there were Money Trees LOL
