Re: How many gifts for Christmas?
I've heard of the 3 gift rule (to represent the 3 gifts of the magi).
Then I've also heard of the 4 gift rule. Something you want, something you need, something you wear, something you read. I think we are doing this one next year!
I got each kids 2-4 presents each. Then they each got a homemade toy and a little lego train in their stocking.
