  • At our house we started doing the Christmas alone again last year and we really enjoyed it. We dont have to rush around on Christmas morning trying to hurry and open gifts and rush to get ready to go somewhere else.

  • Alone, with our kids. We always have x-mas morning with just the 3 of us. I make a nice breakfast, we exchange gifts and relax before our day starts with the family. And my husband always wakes us up at 6am like a kid on x-mas morning. My Ds even gets aggravated lol. It's been that way since we have been together and we enjoy it.

  • We open Gifts the Day before Christmas Eve as a family (me, DH, DD, & DS). That way it's special and not rushed =)

  • It is done with the whole family

  • We plan on doing a "naughty" gift exchange after DD goes to bed on Christmas eve. Then we will open the rest of the gifts together as a family on Christmas morning

  • We exchange on christmas day. First our son opens his gifts, then my dh and I open gifts!

  • We open them on Christmas Eve but we save one or two for Christmas Day to open infront of the kids!

  • We do it alone, we spend Christmas at my mother's house (100 miles away) so when we get back, we do Christmas with the kids and then we open our gifts (if we didn't buy something big for the house)

  • We don't exchange gifts... Over the 10 years we've been together, we rarely even do birthday gifts... Spending more money on travel and remodeling are what we do instead of small gifts a few times a year...

  • We don't do gifts. Our anni is Dec. 30 and we would rather take $50 and go out to a nice dinner/night out.
