What is your Christmas tradition about opening gifts?

Do you allow one gift to be opened on Christmas Eve or only on Christmas Day?

  • well, i grew up with the tradition of opening one on Christmas Eve night. and the rest on Christmas morning.

    Now that i have my own family and we are just establishing our own traditions. We'll be doing something a bit different. Especially because DH and i are both Pagan.

  • my family always opened presents on christmas morning but my husbands family opens everything on christmas eve, they dont celebrate christmas day at all. So we compromised and our daughter opens all of our presents on christmas eve and get her santa presents on christmas morning.

  • I grew up opening one present christmas eve and everything else christmas day, my dh however grew up getting only santa presents on christmas day and opening everything else on christmas eve. Now we sort of switch off this year we will be opening some on christmas ever and some on christmas day and then driving to my mothers and getting some more (we will be busy that day i tell you but hey i dont have to cook this year!) usually however we do one present on 24th and the rest including santa on 25th!

  • Growing up, we always opened everything on Christmas morning. However, we always had a huge get together with friends and family on Christmas Eve so we were able to open presents from everybody that came.

    This is the first year my son will actually be able to open presents (15 months) so I'm not sure what we're going to do. I guess we will see!

  • Christmas eve we're having a nice dinner and then one gift to each, then watch some movies and it's early to bed for our boys. X-mas morning they get up have a good breakfast, which they suck down, and then open presents.. Then it's finally over, ahhhh..... Now lets get on with Spring!!!
