Mother's Christmas tree photo goes viral

(WVUE) - A mother's photo of her family's Christmas tree posted on social media is getting a lot of negative attention.

The photo shows a pile of wrapped presents that nearly dwarfs her tree in the background.

As of Friday afternoon, the photo had over 400 comments, with some saying the amount of presents were obscene, and many commenting on what the mother is teaching her children when it comes to the meaning of Christmas.

Since the post went viral, the mother -- who goes by the name of TheBossMum on Facebook -- posted an update to say that the presents are for her entire family, and reminding everyone that she has three small children.

That update has over a thousand comments, most of them supportive of the mother.
