We open them before bedtime, and wake up to open gifts in brand new jammies. It's fun, and one thing our family enjoys every Christmas.
As a child, our family would get up, get breakfast, and dress in fancy clothes before we opened anything. When I married, I tried to continue that tradition, but Hubby soon shared his dislike to that routine (ha ha!). Thus our own family traditions were created. Sometimes we wear our new jammies all day long on Christmas day.
Another tradition here, is to prep breakfast Christmas Eve, and I simply pop it into the oven Christmas morning. I make a simple Egg and Sausage souffle, and it's the only time of year we enjoy it. It's delicious, easy, and special.
We sip hot coffee, open gifts, scream and holler, and laugh. There are lots of giggles as we watch the dogs, cats and even the rabbit open their special treats.
Today, we are actually getting a light dusting of snow. It's so pretty outside. Hubby has the day off and it's going to be a wonderful day today.
You just never know when a new tradition can creep up on you, so be prepared.
