This is my page about opening presents. We always open them on Christmas Day but don't really have any traditions about the way this is done!
The journalling reads:
'I don't remember a tradition about handing out presents when I was young. The presents were given ou and opened as you got them, so sometimes that meant several people were opening them at the same time. It was something that never occurred to me at the time, but we didn't see what each other had received or from whom. We then showed the presents around after we had opened them.
When Katie and Lizzie were little, they took forever to open presents - sometimes the whole of Christmas Day. This meant that we got to watch them actually opening them and playing with them.
Now they are older we distribute presents to one or two people at a time and wait for those to be opened before passing out some more.'
