On Christmas Eve, after we have gone to mass + consumed an enormous Christmas dinner, my family cozies up to watch It’s A Wonderful Life, and open one present before we go to sleep. When my dad was growing up, his family opened all of their gifts on Christmas Eve and left only the gifts from Santa for Christmas morning. Because of his family traditions, we usually open our gifts from my dad on Christmas Eve. He typically goes all out for Christmas and is too excited and impatient to wait until Christmas morning to give us our gifts. That’s why we love you so much, Dad!
Some of my friends have the tradition of opening their Christmas morning pj’s on Christmas Eve to get all cozied up for the night, which I think is adorable. If my family had that tradition, I would probably hope for these.
