Every Christmas Eve I would beg my parents to let us kids open one teeny tiny present after dinner, but every year my mom answered me with a firm NO. Once, in my early 20s, I even offered to buy us all presents we could open early and she still said no! As I grew into an adult and met more people from different backgrounds I've heard many wonderful stories of new Christmas PJs , a special holiday outfit or a coveted book set out under the tree on Christmas Eve.
I'm still deciding if I'm going to be like my mom so I'd like to hear from you. Does your family open any presents on Christmas Eve?
