    Do you open gifts Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

    We've always opened them Christmas Day. What about you?

    Ha Ha Tink - I always have to wait for my kids too. Even when the 26 year old was a very little girl - we could never get her up!

    Well, we open ours Christmas morning as a family. On Christmas Eve we have extended family over for a buffet dinner and open gifts from them at that time. I still buy my two daughters new pajamas to be opened on Christmas Eve!

    We open one on Christmas Eve (been a tradition for years) and leave the rest until the day.

    My daughter gets to open her gifts Christmas morning. Then, we have a big family gathering at my parents' home, where more gifts are opened. Finally, my wife and I open gifts from each other on Christmas night. A whole day of gifts makes for a lot of fun!

    My DH likes opening gifts after midnight mass, but I prefer waiting till morning. So we do both.
    Joy to You!

    What a great thread!

    I've always opened my gifts Xmas morning with my family. My wife and her family have always opened one gift Xmas eve, though (usually a pair of pyjamas), so we sometimes do that, too. That said, the gift giving is usually spread out among my family over a day or two.

    Neat to hear how they do things in Greece!
