How can you open them before Santa delivers them???
I wait until Christmas Day. Suzanne usually opens them as soon as they arrive!!!
Tony and Suzanne Marri...
When they are in front of me. Can't stand to see them unopened under my tree. Guess I am like a child again. Merry

In the German tradition--always on Christmas Eve. And it seems I'm in the minority.

Always after Santa delivered them! I think now if I had kids, I would give them one box early on Christmas Eve in which would be a pair of Christmas PJs, hot cocoa mix and cup and crazy slippers. I always thought there was nothing worse to get Christmas PJs in the morning - was I supposed to wait a full year before wearing them???
With the grandsons on Christmas morning for the family gifts. Other gifts? Right in front of the person whom I'm getting it from.
We had a small family gathering at my husband's grand mothers last night for kids. Will wait til Christmas for everything else.
One gift on Christmas Eve and one on Christmas Day.
Christmas eve for all family gifts. Christmas morning for whatever Santa Claus brought.

Our tradition is only one on Christmas Eve and the rest Christmas morning after everyone is together and our dog is taken out and fed.
Christmas Eve. My family (except me) does not do morning well
When our son was growing up we opened on Christmas day. It was fun.
Good morning Roger. Gifts? People give gifts? Always thought that I had to buy more furniture for the house.
I let my kids a choice these year. When they were little, it was always morning:)
Good morning Roger. All gifts have been opened already.
One gift on Christmas Eve and the remainder the next morning.
Generally some of each, though my friend Fr Finian mentioned the other day that the guys in his friary open gifts on the epiphany allowing them to concentrate more fully on the Christmas season while saving the gifts for the end of the season.
My wife did not go for this suggestion, but we may save a few for the end of the Christmas season.
French style in deference to my mother. We always celebrated on Christmas Eve. and opened presemts then. Christmas Day was a day to kick back and welcome friends or go to friend's homes. A
One on Christmas Eve and the rest on Christmas Day.
Christmas Eve is our time to get togetehr with family. There should be many gifts for my family.
None to open at our house...we just enjoy the giving!
My family has always opened on Christmas Eve. Then we went to midnight mass.
Christmas day, with friends for a nice lunch.
Christmas Eve with a great dinner, I can't wait! Happy Holidays.
Christmas Day. We did it one year on Christmas Eve when I was 9 , but it just wasn't the same .
We've done both Roger D. Mucci , usually Presents on Christmas Eve and Stockings on Christmas Day. Just tonight the kids asked if they could open the presents on Christmas. Again, I can't believe these are my kids... I would have ripped open a couple by now at their age.
Typically on Christmas Day. As long as we don’t have to get up too early.
Roger D. Mucci with grown up kids, they know what they are going to get (well, they ask for it!) and can't wait until even Christmas Eve.
For my wife, I have 'hidden' the gift which she will see tomorrow morning!
Our family gift exchange is on Christmas Eve
Roger D. Mucci Christmas Eve!
Usually on Christmas Day. However, some gifts are exchanged and opened in advance.
This year Christmas morning, normally Christmas Eve
We no longer exchange f=gifts. Rather we just chase each other around the house with dull scissors!
