    So cool!

    I started this thread because, in the movies and on tv, I only ever saw Santa’s gifts under the tree.

    I too am really enjoying this thread!

    Sounds like you had all kinds of treats. I got loads of gifts because I was the first child/grandchild/godchild,’etc., but I never had a stocking. I did stocking for my kids when they were younger though.

    I do put Lucy's presents under the tree - if they make it that far. She sometimes sniff's them out in the spare room I keep them in before Christmas. LOL

    Oh, the dogs gifts are hidden until Christmas Eve. Otherwise he’d be opening them ahead of time.

    When i waa growinf up, gifts from friends and family went under the tree and Santa gifts were not wrapped and were left in a pile by our stockings. Each kid had a designated place.

    With my own kids, Santa gifts are wrapped and placed under the tree.

    When I was growing up, all presents were under and around the tree. Stockings were hung on the fireplace, until we moved to a place without one. Then they were placed near the tree. Everything inside the stocking was wrapped, so it was extra special and exciting.

    When I was young, I lived in a very large home. My grandparents lived with us. My grandmother had three sisters and they would all come over for Christmas Eve with wrapped presents and place them under the tree. I got to open those and my brother's gift for me on Christmas eve.

    On Christmas Day "Santa" left all my presents under the tree unopened. I knew, at a very young age, Santa was my father, mother, and grandparents and they hid my gifts on the third story, in locked closets.

    This is a picture of me in 1957 on Christmas morning. scan0007.jpg

    That photo really brings back memories. Looks like we're close to the same age.

    Presents from family were wrapped under the tree. Then on Christmas morning our stockings would be filled, and gifts from Santa were under the tree unwrapped.
    Now with my kids gifts from family were wrapped under the tree, and I wrapped my kids in different gift wrap, tags, special bows etc..then set on the edge of the other gifts with their stocking.
