Debt per capita

So while you are thinking about your financial status.  Consider this:

I live in Strasburg, PA – a beautiful little hamlet surrounded by Amish farms.  For that privilege, I have:

$1,655 debt per person

Lancaster County is very nice and has offered me:

$576 debt per person

I like Pennsylvania except for the weather and when it votes democratic and for that I have:

$10,421 debt per person

The USA is a great country by many standards and it boasts:

$53,501 debt per person

Personally, I think these numbers are lower than what we really owe, but lets take it at face value.  I am personally on the line for $66,153.  My wife is too.  So is my son.  My two daughters owe more than that because they live in Lancaster City – I think they each owe about $2,000 more.  So do their husbands.  Oh, and I have two grandchildren so far.  They each owe $68,153 dollars too.  The youngest is 6 months.  She cries when I tell her.  All total, my family owes $607,377 before we get to mortgages, cars, school, credit cards, etc.

How much will you be spending for Christmas this year?
