    Can't believe it's almost here!

    Anyhow, do you let your kids choose what gift to open on Christmas Eve?

    I have every year but this year I want them to specifically open one gift and that is their new bedding. Nothing like sleeping on new bedding in new jamies and dreaming of Santa. :) Some kids may not like to open such a thing on Christmas Eve, but I think my kids are really gonna love their bedding.

    This is one thing i've never gotten my head around, Why open a present xmas eve? Doesn't it defeat the object of xmas day to open everything & make 1 big mess lol

    I don't like josh open anything xmas eve & i wont with jax either, Our routine is virtually the same as any other night really apart from we'll be putting out santas food, reindeer food & sprinkling magic reindeer dust outside etc , bath & xmas story then bed to poss watch a xmas dvd depending how tired he is. Then i'll wrap anything not already done & i'll arrange it all on the settee like a nutjob :) lol

    well its nice to give kids a little something to maybe help them to sleep and makes it all that bit more exciting.. we used to get pj's every xmas eve and it was just lovely to get into bed xmas eve to clean new pj's all excited for the next day :)
    not really letting them open a present that sud be opened xmas day just a little xtra thing..
