What is your opening presents tradition? As a kid, we would have a family get together at my grandmother's house and open most gifts on Christmas Eve, just before midnight or right at midnight. Then I'd go home with my family and there would always be one BIG gift waiting.

Today, we do Christmas Day; it just somehow worked better that way.

When do you open your gifts?
