WHEN DO YOU OPEN GIFTS?
My family always opened our gifts on Christmas morning. My husband’s family did it on Christmas Eve. So when we had our kids we compromised.
After church on Christmas Eve, we drive around looking at the lights, have chili dogs & open gifts (from the family). The evening is topped of with banana splits.
On Christmas morning we open our stockings & gifts from “Santa” & then share in a breakfast casserole & cinnamon rolls.
Christmas is meant to be spent with those you love. That being said, we have shared Christmas with many different people over the years (family, friends, & college roommates just to name a few).
I love Christmas Eve candlelight services or reading the Christmas story around the fire with steaming mugs of hot chocolate (or coffee) & a slice of Jesus’ birthday cake.
I invite all of my fellow bloggers & readers to play along. Feel free to respond in the comments instead of creating a post of your own.
