Hubby and I are opening ours at home on Christmas Eve morning.  The next morning we’ll open presents with my family and later that day with his family.  And even though we’ll be with his family, his parents are super weird about wanting to be alone to open gifts, so we’ll most likely have to make a special trip to their house over the weekend to open gifts with them there.

My SO and I exchange holiday pajamas on Christmas Eve to wear to bed that night. We open the rest of the gifts early Christmas morning, and exchange with our families shortly afterwards.

We go to my husband’s Dad’s house on Christmas Eve, he feels really uncomfortable around his dad so it is more of a formality and that is the only time during the year that we see him.  They usually give us money, but they spoil the kids rotten, so of course its one of their favorite places to go for Christmas. 

For our family presents, we open them all on Christmas morning after Santa has delivered the presents for the girls.  Then we go over to my Mom’s and open presents there.  There isn’t a set time that we go to his Mom’s, but we go sometime in the days surrounding Christmas.  Last year she visited her son in Texas over Christmas and this year she is coming over to our house Christmas morning to watch the girls open their gifts.

Our tradition is to open one gift per person on Christmas Eve, then leave the rest til Christmas morning. 🙂

Fiance and I will open ours today (Christmas Eve). We’ll open with my parents and my aunts family Christmas morning and then with his family on Sunday since his brother/SIL will be out of town at her families until then.

Our family’s tradition is to stay up until midnight from Christmas Eve to Christmas morning to open gifts together.  Darling Husband and I usually exchange gifts when we get home from our family gathering; then we knock out.
