Opening Presents

Do you open all of your presents on Christmas day or do you open some on Christmas Eve? We open all of ours on Christmas morning.

i do have a lot to learn, but not on this particular subject!

i spend xmas with my mother who only ever has a few days off. she and i love love love getting each other presents. we both spend the whole year creating the perfect group of gifts and stocking stuffers for each other. sometimes one of us has done a "theme" sometimes not. she usually drives up and i go help her unload her car and then we say ok... one present. then we have a snack or something and open another and keep going! i have a group of friends that always come over during this 3 day period. we have gifts for them and they have gifts for us and we eat fabulous food and drink great wine and have marvelous convos.

i couldnt get any better for us!

It all depends on who we are with. My parents' tradition is to open the gifts on Christmas Eve. Not sure why, but never cared, either. My wife's family opened gifts on Christmas Day, so we end up splitting the occasion between the two. I see more and more people moving Christmas to a day that suits them more, as if it was Presidents Day or some other lame holiday. (I love the presidents, but the holiday is l-a-m-e-o, and lame-o was it's name-o.) 8)

Ok, Elfworks...since it is your mother, I guess you can break the rules. I just thought being a Gentile and all you, of all people, would be beholden to Santa and his merry traditions.

Santa, as you know, is an anagram for Satan. [sigh]

President's day is lame, Sheep? Not in my house. We dress the kids up in beards and top hats and have them throw silver dollars over the stream out back.

I know you're kidding, right Jeff? Abraham Lincoln did now throw silver dollars, it was that other guy, George Stephanopolous.
