Does anyone else get to open one present on Christmas eve?

We decided to open one present today cos we have done quite well this year, do you think I should open a big one? a small one? or that oddly shaped one that's been bugging me?

    We get to open packages of pajamas on Christmas Eve. Every year I start asking about a week ahead if we can please just open the presents now, but with no luck. I think I would open the oddly shaped one if given the chance because then it will stop bugging you. A big present hasn't always been what I wanted in the past so then you're stuck with something you don't like for a day. Also the bigger present usually went with some other packages so you can't really use it anyway until Christmas Day when you open the other presents.

    Yes as a child we always opened presents from the immediate family on Christmas Eve, then the ones from people outside the family on Christmas Day, now that I have my own children, we try to follow this also, however this year we will be opening all gifts on Christmas Eve.

    Happy Holidays...

    I open presents from family members on Christmas Eve and then "Santa" presents Christmas morning. I have done it like that all of my life and I am now 19 and a mommy and I will do the same thing with my son this year.

    Not when I was a kid. I did, however, get to open my gifts whenever I got up....meaning if I went and woke my parents up at like 4:30am, I get to do all my gifts!!!

    IT'S TRADITION IN OUR HOUSE. 1 PRESENT ON CHRISTMAS EVE. BUT IT'S USUALLY A SMALL ONE. THAT WAY THE BIG ONES GET FILMED ON X-MAS DAY.
