My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree. Some merchants won't even say "Merry Christmas"! Where there is controversy, there is insanity. Even in Christmas.

Sarebbe simpatico aprirli alle ore 24 ma spesso i bambini dormono e cosė si aprono la mattina quando siamo tutti svegli.

It would be likeable to open them to hours 24 but often the children sleep and therefore they open the morning when we are all wide awake ones.
CIAOOO

Sometimes I do half and half (open some on 12/24, open the rest on 12/25).

Mostly I've opened my presents on Xmas Day (A day that I never have to work or do chores, because of course, it's a HOLIDAY. And holidays are about FUN, not work).

We open one each on Christmas eve and the rest Christmas morning.
I knwo there are some traditions that don't have a tree at all and Santa Brings it and presents on Christmas eve - when the kids wake up, Santa has brought a tree, decorated it and left presents!!

WOW busy parents!

I recall as a kid my parents picking out a night the week before Christmas and we would go out to eat, drive around and look at Christmas lights. The we would come home and get to open 1 present. Was like a warm up.

That's a pretty cool memory. I guess you knew that some gifts were provided my your folks, eh? Santa doesn't come early or late, he's always on time.
