WRAPPED!!!

I can't believe some people never wrap them! It takes all the excitement out of it when you can see it all right away. When I was a kid the only things that were never wrapped were doll strollers or beds, with the doll in them. I asked him not to wrap any more of my dolls, they might smother

My husband's aunt has fought me HARD over this, telling me Santa doesn't have time to wrap them. In my family the story was that he wrapped them sloppy, all in the same paper (Santa paper) with no bows or tags, only a name or intial written sloppily in crayon. I really think it's more fun and more of a surprise when they are wrapped. I carry on my family tradition for my kids and hope they will too.

That's why you write it messy, using your wrong hand and a dull crayon

When we discovered there was no Santa and where the gifts were hidden, we used to unwrap some of them and look at them then re-wrap them


My sister and I did that once, and got caught.

Mine were wrapped from Santa, but they had a different wrapping paper from any other presents in the house.

This is how I discovered there was no Santa, because I found the same wrapping paper hidden in the corner in the basement a week after Christmas.

My mom and I were just talking about this-she said her reasoning as to why the Santa presents were unwrapped was 'cause every time she'd see a picture of Santa on his sleigh and stuff, he'd just have the toys in a big bag, and none of them looked to be in wrapping paper.

That's a lot of wrapping paper. Bet it cost more than the piano.

Unwrapped, and (poorly) hidden in the trunk of my mother's car until Christmas.

When I found them, she claimed that Santa was behind schedule, and that he had asked her to pick them up at the store and drop them off so he could deliver them.

And I fell for it.

Wrapped, always. I guess we never thought to ask when Santa had time to wrap them all.

Wrapped!!! The only thing Santa didn't wrap in our house was bikes. My mom always used different paper and tags for the Santa gifts and I did the same thing with my kids.

I guess it really didn't matter with my kids though, since they admitted a few years ago that they've been peeking at their gifts since they were 7 or 8 years old

One year I got an entire kiddie kitchen set (kid life size) and that of course wasn't wrapped just the boxed stuff.

Oh yes, the paper has to be a different, special roll that nothing else gets wrapped in, and it's never seen or found anywhere else (the roll and any residue must be disposed of before any kids see it) My Mom always used Santa paper for Santa toys, and she didn't believe in wrapping adults' presents in Santa paper even if it wasn't the same one used for the Santa presents.

I found out about Santa not being real by snooping under my teenage brother's bed when I was 8 He didn't want me in his room, that's what I got for being nosey! But I didn't admit I knew because I was afraid of not getting the presents

My Mom always got us clothes or something from her, but not my Dad. So one year I blurted out, why doesn't Daddy ever get us anything for Christmas? Poor guy was sitting there just stewing, his money having financed most of "Santa."
