The mom of Britain’s biggest family is expected to spend £ 5,000 on Christmas presents for her 22 children this year.
Sue Radford, 46, said the family had installed their first Christmas tree to decorate their home in Morecambe, Lancashire.
Last year, mom and her partner Noel planted trees in their living room, kitchen and on their veranda to feel the festive spirit.
For previous Christmas celebrations, Sue said she spent £ 5,000 on gifts, spending between £ 100 and £ 250 each for the children, the Star of the day reports.
Sue also bought a personalized Santa Claus bag for each child so the gifts wouldn’t risk getting mixed up.
Sue hand-wraps every gift she buys and it has already been reported that she can wrap around 20 gifts every 15 minutes.
She and Noel use around 70 rolls of wrapping paper each year to meet their huge brood.
The couple once revealed that they stayed up until 1 a.m. on Christmas morning peeling vegetables and potatoes, ready for their massive dinner.
Noel has already shown how he cooks 10 kg turkey and 7 kg of potatoes and Brussels sprouts.
The Radfords are financially supported by their pie shop business.
When asked if the family is wealthy during a Q&A on their YouTube channel, Sue replied, “Absolutely not, we are definitely not secret millionaires.
“For me rich would be having the big mansion, the flash cars and a few hundred thousand people in the bank, for me it would be rich but we are not.”
They make money through branded social media partnerships, but their main source of income is from the Radford Pie company, located near the family home, which serves fresh and healthy pies to customers across the UK. .
Sue and Noel bought their Victorian home – a former care home – for £ 240,000 in 2004, and their family size has grown significantly since then.
There are currently 19 of their children living at home as the elders Chris, 31, and Sophie, 26, have moved in, although they are still there for visits.
Living at home is Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 18, James, 17, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 12, Tillie, 10, Oscar, nine, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, two and baby Heidie.
Their 17th child, Alfie, was stillborn in 2014.
The family recently welcomed a new addition after Sue announced that Chris has become a father for the third time.
