  • poll: Do you wait to open all your gifts on Christmas?

    I always wait to open all my gifts on Chrismas Eve or Day.

    I am guilty of opening some of my gifts before Christmas.

    We open them on Christmas Eve, at night. It’s what my family always did growing up.

    We usually wait until Christmas morning, but if somebody sends something through the mail we usually open it in case it’s perishables!  (Or at least that’s the excuse…)  😀

    I always wait.  To me, it kind of kills the fun and excitement of Christmas to open stuff early.

    We open a small give on Christmas Eve, and all the other gifts on Christmas morning. This year will be different, though, because my parents will be on vacation for a month 🙁

    I wore the boots DH bought me for Christmas yesterday… in my defense we won’t be together Christmas Eve/Day anyway.

    We used to get to open one present early.Then the rest on Christmas Eve once we got back from the Christmas Eve Service at church.

    We do Christmas morning. But since my Mother-In-Law took over all holidays, we have Christmas at her house on a completely different day than the 24th or 25th, therefore DH and I can have the actual Christmas day all to ourselves. It is lovely.

    I grew up doing presents on Christmas Morning.. My fiance’s family did it Christmas Eve.. so we do something Christmas eve with his family..then we come home and do ours..so that Christmas morning is focused on his daughter.

    We always wait until Christmas morning for family gifts, but if I were to see a close girlfriend before the actual day and we had gifts for each other, we’d just open ours up during our time together so we could see each other’s reactions!

    LOL, since DH usually does NOTHING before christmas eve we wait.  Last year my christmas gifts were all bought at CVS.  At least this year he is making me my fork braclet so I know that I will like it, LOL.

    I voted that we wait but thats not exactly true. Its important to us to have “our christmas” (mine and DH’s) in our own home alone, so if we’re not going to be home on christmas eve/day then we just do it the last day before we leave.
