It its not worth getting into debt for is it?
"to keep up with the other families who spend as much"
Ah so they dont actually HAVE to spend anything at all its just to indulge their own vanity/stupidity pandering to the "keep up with the joneses" mentality
"300 euro is not unusual for a dress and shoes and accessories"
"also a family meal and booze up afterwards"
"I had one woman in tears in to me that she will be shamed by other families if her daughter is not as well got out as the others"
"I know of one hard up family who have been in the postion of selling items from house to pay for this"
"I am sure its not required but no one speaks out against"
Why on earth do they have the kids christened in
