    Yes! It’s a lifelong tradition with my side of the family. Usually some PJs or a good book too.

    That said, when I came home on the 22nd, hubs had wrapped all of my presents and couldn’t stand himself, so he made me open one. Then I made him open one. Then we realized we wouldn’t get to have a Christmas in our home (we’re moving in six days), so we opened everything, stockings and all!

    I probably begged my parents each year to let me but they never gave in. Christmas morning it is!

    Yup, pajamas.  I still continue that and the boys love it.  The youngest (14) came out a few weeks ago and gave me his clothing sizes, you know, just “in case”  I needed them.  One of his catagories was pajama pants:  Size med, really likes the light weight ones and the color green.  LOL, it was just so darn cute next to Favorite cologne: Armani Code.

    Nothing opened ’til Christmas morning.  I do remember getting up in the middle of the night to see all the gifts and silently check out my stocking.  I was always SO excited!  My Dad liked to sleep in, and he was the one that operated the camcorder, so we even had to wait ’til he got up and set it up before we could open any gifts.  We did get to go through our stockings first thing when our Mum got up.

    Yep – we always got to pick one present from underneath the tree to open on X-mas eve.  My mom always had to approve our choice though (sometimes we had to put it back and pick a new one).

    Yes we got to open one, it was usually a book or coloring/activity book to keep us occupied in the morning so my parents could sleep longer, although they never made us wait too long in the mornings.
