BLOGMAS 2014 - DAY 6 - OPEN OPEN OPEN

BLOGMAS 2014 - DAY 6 - When do you open presents?

This has changed a lot over the years.  My family traditions of a BIG Christmas eve from when I was a kid carried on through college, but as we got older and got families of our own, parents passed on, blended families (with their own traditions) were formed, etc... getting together for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day became harder and harder to do.  

Eventually for me it became more and more Christmas morning only which is fine by me.

  1. You know whatever works right??? We still open every Christmas Eve but who's to say that won't change in the future :)

  2. Following along with Sandra Blogmas posts! Your opening presents routine sounds very similar to my own. Things change as we get older and that is okay. :)

  3. Traditions change; families change; things change over the years...but whatever works for each person and their family, is what makes the holiday special!! Thanks for sharing!
