We get together with my family Christmas Eve and open presents from them. We open presents with kids Christmas morning. What do you do?

gifts - christmas gifts
very soon as i recieve it i open it and read this about decoration Christmas Ornaments and Decorations Make homemade Christmas ornaments and decorations. Why buy costly ornaments and decorations when you can have fun making your own?Before throwing out that old artificial tree that no one else wants, consider cutting off the branches and using them to make wreathes.

Those are some great ideas. I will have to make some wreaths out of old artificial trees. I see them for sale cheap at yard sales all the time. Thanks for sharing.

That is a good thing to seperate his birthday presents from the Christmas presents. I have heard some people born near Christmas feel that they don't get presents for b-day and christmas.

We usually open chirstmas gifts in the early hours of the 25th..I guess stay up all night long and the early mornings of chirstmasday. We all eat, adore the presents, be exited and probably watch a movie or something..but we don't hit the pillows until we really get tired..heheheh

My brother and uncle used to carefully unwrap the presents to see what we got and then wrap them back up. LOL. I could always wait. Hope you had a Merry Christmas. Thanks for stopping by.

Now we open all the time it seems like. When I was little, we openend one thing Christmas Eve, everything else Christmas Day. I continued that tradition with my kids. Now they are grown and we would normally do our stuff Christmas Day, we go to my Mother's later in the week to do some stuff over there, and we try to hook up with my Step-Mother later in the week too. Mostly it now depends on family schedules and what works for everyone else. My son in the Navy opened his last week because that's when he got the package in the mail!!!
