We are very blessed and do the same thing.
I instituted a kids only get Christmas presents for our family almost 6 years ago, now we buy for needy families vs family adults and talk about it over Christmas dinner. Some called me scrouge, some griped and cried about it at first but they had no idea at the time. Everyone enjoys it now. I came up with the idea after helping hand out toys 7 years ago to needy children and a little boy told me it was the best christmas he had ever had and asked to give gave me a hug over a $20 toy. You think your tuff till something like that happens.
Merry Christmas Brethren
