^^ i still wouldnt let lo do that as those presnts will be put out at night as the relatives will have sent them to santa and he will bring them along my his presents for us. i just think it makes it more magical. i wouldnt give him a pre birthday pack or let him open a present early which i think is just the same.
We grew up with people who had a large family so there were LOADS of relatives which, if everyone was in one house, could mean one very large and hectic Christmas. So the idea was the present we opened on Christmas Eve was not from Santa. I think possibly a relative may have had a birthday on the 23rd or 24th December, and then my sister's was the 29th, so I guess it was mostly done to stop the rest of us being jealous?!
i dont like the idea of it either christmas days is ment to be magical as santa brings the presents how can you explain that santa has dropped a present off when hes ment to be in a different country and there friends prob wont get anything. lo will have new pjs and a watch christmas films anyway
Everyone has their own traditions
I've never heard of relatives sending gifts to Santa, they always brought them for us and we thanked them. I'll be doing the same with Lucas, so he'd only be confused again if his friends did something similar to your family. Everyone does something different at Christmas and it's magical in its own way, I'd like to think the kids are too excited and happy with their gifts to demand to know how Santa managed to fit them into his hectic schedule.
I love the sound of a Christmas Eve pack, we always got our PJs to open and another gift (usually from a relative we never saw like someone else said ). I can just see my pack from Santa now - a roll of paper, a reel of tape and a few Pro Plus
This is my first year doing it as i seen someone on about it on here and loved the idea!
Im going to do, new pjs, a christmas book, a dvd and probs some choc buttons. LO will only be 8 months so cant have anything too exciting this year!!
