Dec. 11 (Bloomberg) -- For the first time in their lives, Consuelo Serrano’s kids won’t get a visit from Santa Claus.
The Spanish mother will give presents only on the Jan. 6 Epiphany holiday, a Christian feast that marks when three wise men visited Jesus. As Spain grew faster than the region over the last decade, Serrano and millions like her handed out gifts at Christmas too. Now, she’s the sole breadwinner as the nation’s jobless rate soared to the euro area’s highest.
Well, at least we have Hanukkah!
