I'm from southern Connecticut. Since i was a child, I opened one small Christmas gift on Christmas eve. My husband and I keep that tradition alive to this day. WE go to church on Christmss Eve for 5:30 mass. When we come hme, we enoy an assortment of appetizers. Chrsitmas Day, we stay home. I make a big breakfast that morning, ans we open presents. WE have a nice dinner, and relax that day, listening to Christmas music, watching Christmas movies, and playing games.
