A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employee says she was unable to get her family as much for Christmas as she typically does because of the ongoing partial government shutdown. "My son made a comment where he said Santa didn't give us as much as he did last year, and that was heartbreaking," the unidentified employee told Buzzfeed News. "We try to not be materialistic with our kids, but it kind of hurt that he noticed," she added. The employee added that her husband is also a federal employee and said they aren't sure when they will again receive paychecks.
