It's gotten better the past couple of years to be honest with Y'all lol we get up here around 7 but there was a time when they woke up around 4:30 lol
Now we have a rule they have to eat something before anyone touches the gifts. if not they dont eat untill supper because they are so excited. So if one kid wakes up they go and wake the other 6 and grab a bite to eat and then the fun begins!!!!

I remember one year when I was a kid...I woke my mom up at like 5:30.

She was a really good sport about it. I can't imagine getting up that early these days. At my mom's house each year now, I'm the one who always says "uugh, can't we sleep some more?!?" She starts talking to herself/dogs, grinding coffee and banging pans, making it impossible to sleep though. She's not very subtle.

Around 7:30, to get ready for Church service. But even as a kid, I was never an early bird. My Mom claims that 8:30 was the earliest I ever woke her up on Christmas.

This year, we will be opening gifts probably around 6 or 7 am. The last two years we've had to wait for my mother to come home from work...

Well, DH will be working night shift on Christmas Eve and I will be working night shift on Christmas night, so I won't want to get up super earlier, especially since my kids are 2 and 3 months and my son won't even be able to open his gifts. I would say will open the gifts as soon as my daughter wakes up on her own!

I am still usually the first one up, because I can't sleep well on Christmas Eve into Christmas Day, we have our stereo set up to go off with Christmas music (always Bing Crosby) at 6AM to get everyone up.
