Every family is different. Some people open presents on Christmas Eve, while others wait until Christmas morning.

There's no right or wrong way to do it.  When I was a kid we were allowed to open one present on Christmas Eve and the rest had to wait until morning. I remember being so excited that I would toss and turn for hours before finding sleep.

I was always envious of my friends who were allowed to open their presents on Christmas Eve... a tradition that my wife and I started with our family.  We exchange our gifts on Christmas Eve and then we open the presents Santa brings on Christmas morning. When does your family exchange gifts?
