Santa always wrapped my gifts and put them under the tree on Christmas eve....I always got confused when some of my friends got their presents unwrapped by Santa, but I always thought opening the gifts were half the fun!
& we didn't have a chimney growing up either, our parents always told us santa could walk right through the door without opening it, we always thought it was so cool!
loved everyones stories, my girls still get theres under the tree...or just in front if they are to big to go under.
So excited for christmas 2012
We have stocking in our house, which we hang up on the landing near the bedrooms.
we dont have a fireplace, but we do have a "magic" key, which we hang out for santa to use, so that he can get in without a fireplace
Alot of families have the tradition of leaving gifts from Santa unwrapped. My parents always wrapped Santa gifts unless they were huge, like a bicycle. I followed the same rule of thumb with my kids. It is easier and cheaper not to wrap these gifts, but so much more exciting to have to unwrap them. If they are all sitting unwrapped, the child doesn't know which way to look first! Unwrapping one at a time lets them appreciate each one on its own.
I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas
Didn't Know about that where is Santa Put the gifts.\
Did you know???
Well, Santa skipped our house. We didn't leave him any cookies! I guess that's why I never got a bike!
My mother put two gifts under the tree for each of her children (one toy or book and one item of clothing). They were always wrapped. We opened our gifts on Christmas Eve. One Christmas I was disappointed with both gifts. We never did stockings but our tree was beautiful and we had a scrumptious turkey dinner (on Christmas Day) and pumpkin pie for dessert.
