People have several misconceptions about Christmas and personal finances. We narrowed them down into the three most common ones.

The holidays are the time of year when people feel the most pressure to spend more than they should. Let’s look at the worst financial mistakes we make during Christmas.

In the end, it’s not about spending as much as you can, but spending time with your loved ones.
