Do you open birthday presents at the party?

When I was a kid presents were always opened at the party but the first 2 I took my son to they were not. Is it an age thing? They are 2. Or have things just changed?

  • We open at the party. I expect it but don't really care if it doesn't happen.

  • I always open during the party. I have never been to one that they didnt. I think it is rude if you dont open them during the party

  • I think it would be kinda rude not to to open presents. My sons 1st bday party is coming up, I think i may ask my IMMEDIATE family who we see all the time to give my son his gift before or after the party so there are not soo many to open during the party. I think as they get older they are more excited to open and the process will move more quickly.
