So-when do you  open the presents?   On Christmas Eve or Christmas morning?

We (my sister and myself) were the only grandchildren in the family until we were teenagers so the whole family, both sets of grandparents, aunt and uncles, would come to our house Christmas morning.  We would exchange gifts and have a HUGE breakfast.  As we grew older and my uncle started his family, we moved our family breakfast to Christmas Eve (which happened to be my mom and dad's anniversary) so that my uncle could have the family over on Christmas morning.  

We have lost most of the family now, but we still gather on Christmas Eve and exchange gifts and share stories of family members and gifts of long ago.
