Does your family open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
I have a sister who is 12-years younger than me, so in my family we have always exchanged presents bright and early on Christmas morning. As soon as our baby sister was awake, so was the rest of the family. Down the stairs we went to see what Santa had in store.

Was it the ugly Christmas sweater that you gave to Aunt Margie last year, carefully wrapped and unknowingly (or knowingly) re-gifted right back to you? Was it that set of salt-and-pepper shakers shaped like cheese wedges that your grandmother gave you because she thinks you need a hobby, and shouldn't everyone have a collection of something? Was it the donation made in your name to a charity you would never have wanted to support, but that the giver supports enthusiastically? The …
