Heck yeah. All of them. That tradition got passed down from the German half of the family.

never. I hate to open any gift before the actual occasion.
it's nothing new, when I was a kid I was just lazy. my dad still talks about having to practically bribe my bro and I to get out of bed and go see our gifts!!

Like others mentioned, it's usually happening on Christmas Eve in Germany, and so it did here.
And today the next round for me.

We have Steve's family Christmas Eve, and my family Christmas Day.

We get to do both.

No MOT here (even though people like to interpret my last name as such) - but gave it a vote to call LMPhisto a "little Bastard."

Merry Xmas and thank you for the gift LMPhiztoe.

When we open presents depends on the time we have. My boyfriend and I swapped gifts on the 20th, since I was leaving to go back to my hometown the next day. I opened presents with my parents and my sister on the 23rd because we were going to be busy visiting relatives on the 24th, and we were going to be leaving my sister's early on the 25th to go home. We wanted enough time to leisurely open our gifts and then have time to hang around and enjoy them together for a little while.

Christmas Eve I opened gifts with Mike's side of the family. Actual Christmas Day we opened the gifts we got each other at home.

However with my family it was always tradition to open presents on actual Christmas day.
