  • Christmas MORNING! As kids we never got to open our gifts until Christmas morning, now anything else seem just wrong. This year we may do gifts with my in-laws on Christmas eve...I guess I have to call MIL and see what she wants to do.

  • Sometimes we do one each on Xmas eve then the rest on Christmas day. It helps dissipate some of the anxiety I thinkwink

  • Our family all get together on Christmas Eve and we open gifts. However, for my son I save a few of the bigger gifts for him to open Christmas morning!

  • Growing up, my dad was HARDCORE on waiting until AFTER church on Christmas day.
    My grandma would have everyone over the weekend before or day before and we would open those early- he always hated that. It drove him nuts!

    Hubby and I decided that we let them have ONE gift each on Christmas Eve and the rest have to wait until chrismas morning after we get our coffee ;)
    *if someone has a gathering and wants to open gifts any other day at their house- that's fine

  • It depends on who I am spending Christmas with and when everyone can get together to celebrate. Some years we don't even do it till after Christmas because that is when everyone can be together.
