    when do you open Christmas presents?

    my family does it Christmas morning. But I know people who do it a lot of other times. What time do you open gifts?

    Re: when do you open Christmas presents?

    My sister and I used to force Christmas Eve when we were younger, but now we all get together Christmas morning, followed by grandparents in the evening, and the other grandparents on Friday night.

    It's a marathon.

    Re: when do you open Christmas presents?

    Usually leave those for Christmas morning, but every so often we'll have some "joke" presents or little presents that we have each other open after/before the late service at church.

    Re: when do you open Christmas presents?

    Most of the time when I was younger we would open gifts on Christmas Eve. The next day we would always travel to the grandparents houses and open presents there too.

    Christmas morning with my wife and son. Dinner that night with my parents and sisters family. Wife's family whenever and other extended family whenever we plan the trip for, usually a weekend before or after.
