Do you believe in opening all of your Christmas presents on Christmas day?

I know some families do this differently. I know some families open some presents Christmas eve and some on the day of. We have always waited until Christmas Day, but when I used to go to a party that relatives had on Christmas Eve we all got one present which we opened that night. This was the one from other family..Our main gifts were always done on Christmas Day. I always adherred to this with my own family too. What about you?

I always open on Christmas morning, This year spending Christmas alone and my sister says she is bringing me presents like last year, but instead of sleeping over her house i will open them with my kitty cat on Christmas morning. She did say she will let me open one on Christmas Eve as she and her family are coming to m house ao i can get give them what I bought them then the rest of the presents go under my tree. I know my kitty will open them for me before i get up. I am letting him open them anyway, so i think he will love playing with the paper

Oh yes, they love the satisfying crunch of the paper. Just make sure he doesn't swallow any tinsel or ribbon..My sister's cat one year swallowed a great deal of ribbon..and had to have surgery...it almost killed her actually.

@snowy22315 I don't know if there will be ribbon but thanks for warning me. I have no tinsel out as my tree only as lights on it. I was told a the shelter to not give him yarn or he will be in the animal ER and getting emergency surgery I am not decorating this year as it would just tempt him too much!

@Marty1 They are kind of attracted to tinsel..So, you have to watch them with that..especially a young cat.

My family does it all on Christmas day as well. When we were kids we would open gifts from relatives on Christmas Eve too, then from Santa/parents we opened on Christmas day.

Yes, when we were kids we made out like bandits at all the holidays..as my grandparents were indulgent, and my parents to a certain extent were too.

@snowy22315 My parents never thought they did enough since there was 4 of us kids. We always felt like we got more than enough though and were very grateful!

Growing up, we always got one present on Christmas Eve. Sometimes it was a CD, sometimes it was a pair of fuzzy socks (I like socks, and my parents know/knew lol). I don't think we've done it as much since my Daddy passed away, but my nieces/nephew here get PJs on Christmas Eve (the youngest thinks they're from the Elves, and the older ones play along); it's kind of a tradition my older sister and brother-in-law have with their own kids. I still like to give my Mom something on Christmas Eve. :) The rest of the presents are opened on Christmas morning.

We were much like you. If we came home from Midnight Mass we might open one present before going to bed. But most got opened on Christmas Day.

When I was a kid, we always opened gifts under the tree from friends and family on Christmas Eve, and gifts from Santa on Christmas day. I continued this tradition with my kids also.

Yes, it is always kind of nice to open one or two a bit early if possible.

Most years we each open one gift from someone outside the family on Christmas Eve. IF there are gifts from outside the family, lol. We open all the other gifts Christmas morning. Even though you don't believe in Santa anymore, the anticipation of Christmas is so delicious!
