Crisis-hit France enjoys low-cost Christmas

Cash-strapped French families find innovative ways to maintain Europe’s expensive holiday traditions.

The holiday season is an expensive time for families in Europe. In fact, the average household spends $780 on Christmas Day alone.

For people struggling to make ends meet, the food, presents and entertainment for the children can be too much.

This is why many families in France are looking for low-cost ways to survive until January.
