Do you do Christmas Eve? Christmas morning? After breakfast?
When we were kids we would wake up before dawn, begging Mom and Dad to get up so we could see what Santa brought. After being told to go back to bed till at least 6 a.m., it was finally time that we could get up. We were too excited to eat breakfast but we had to wait for Mom to get her coffee and while we did that, we were allowed to open the gifts in our stockings. We all headed into the living room and gathered around the Christmas tree and Mom would begin handing out gifts. When we were done, we'd play with the stuff we got then went to get dressed. A couple hours later my dad's parents would come over and we exchanged gifts. After they left, we went to my grandma's on my mom's side. She had very little money but the gifts she gave us always came from the heart. It was always a full but exciting day.
When I had kids of my own, I've had to wake them up every Christmas morning! We still kind of do the same thing...hubby goes to get his coffee while the kids would open the gifts in their stockings. Later in the morning we go to my dad's house, where my 2 sisters & their families and us meet up to exchange gifts.
