    Im usually naughty and convince people to open presents early [​IMG] but this year i had an excuse and we opened most of our presents early because our family isnt getting together on christmas day. Theres still a couple under the tree though...
    But if im forced to be nice, we open one present each on Christmas eve, and the rest on Christmas morning.

    I have nice kids with naughty moments [​IMG]

    In our family, the kids exchange their gifts to each other on Christmas Eve after evening mass and if the kids got us presents, we'd open them then, too.

    Christmas morning the kids open their gifts from Santa and from us.

    We open all our presents on Christmas Morning, and then for Christmas dinner we open all the other family presents (aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, etc...)

    That's kinda just how it always worked out for us. [​IMG] I think one year we opened one each on Christmas Day, but that was because the aunt that gave us the presents wouldn't be there the next day.

    I know, I'm a bore. [​IMG]

    We open christmas presents at MY parents Christmas Eve after church because 'Santa' [​IMG] goes there first and doesn't come to OUR house until after the kids go to bed. In the morning WE open presents at our house.

    Quote:Good thing you opened the present with the puppy in it already. I don't think he would have lasted 'til Christmas. [​IMG]

    We let the kids have one gift Christmas eve (one we select) then they get the rest on Christmas morning.

    Honestly if I let them open any more on Christmas eve - or wild "wind me up" toys and things like that - they'd NEVER go to bed!

    That is the way my family did it when I was growing up - my hubby's family opened all their gifts on Christmas eve.
