I know there are already two other Christmas threads but neither of them were going to go in the direction that I wanted with this.

How do you guys enjoy your Christmas morning? Be as detailed as you want--I assure you I'll read every word. I absolutely love seeing what everyone else does tradition wise and such.

Well, with my family we all end up waking up around 8am. It's hard to sleep in on an exciting day :P and usually my mom has been up since like 6am. We come running out of our rooms (my brother and I anyways) and get a good look at the tree. It makes me feel all warm just thinking about it. I love Christmas! Then after that my parents will come out and we'll say good morning and eat a big breakfast, the whole time looking at the tree every once in awhile, and finally we'll dig into presents. Usually we open up our stockings and then go around and start passing out presents one at a time. I love to make it last as long as possible. Anyways after we're done with that we'll go off and try out our new gadgets and gifts and I'll help my mom with our meal and a few hours later family will start to arrive (my grandparents, sister, nephews, girlfriend) and then we'll do it all over again. We usually play games into the night and as a whole it's just really fun :).

What about you guys?

Hermmm....
Well,
since my parents are divorced,
it varies,
but usually,
we go out of town after christmas day.
ON christmas day, it goes something like thiss...
Usually the night before, I don't get to bed until like 1 o clock because I'm so excited about the next day. Whenever I wake up at 7, lulz, I have to wait about an hour or two for everyone to wake up and get awake and all that. Then we open presents before breakfast. Since there's alot of people that have to open presents usually (5 or 6) we all take turns opening various gifts of our choosing, always starting with the stocking. I dunno about everyone else, but I always like to shake my presents, just because you might be able to guess whats inside. :] After presents, we all eat at a more formal dining room with a large table. Ususally its pancakes or omlettes or something tasty.

Well anyways,
thats how my c-mas's usually go.

Wow, you guys have much more festive Christmas' then I do. xD; Forgive me if I put a damper on the mood, but I speak nothing but the truth.

My Christmas usually goes like this:

Christmas Eve is a normal day of me and my brother sitting in front of our computers or playing the PS2. We go to bed super late because we're defeating Sin in FFX for the bajillionth time.

Christmas, we wake up suuuper late, like, around 11:30, have to wait until my mom gets up at around 1:00 PM, eat whatever whenever we get up, and then if we have any presents under the Christmas tree, we'll open them. There's usually only three though, since my brother is the only one who's anal about wrapping them and not letting us open them until Christmas or all that mumbo jumbo, so there's usually one (or two, hurr) for me, one for my mom (if even), and one for my dad. And my brother has probably already bought his christmas gift for himself by now. xDD He's hard to please, so we've kind of given up on getting him a present.

We usually sit on the stairs for this process, because it's right next to the Christmas tree, and our stairs are friggin' huge, so it's convenient. It also means that the dinky wrapping paper my brother insists on using is thrown away at once, instead of sitting there so that my dog can chew on it and make it nasty. xD

And then after that, we'll go back to our usual activities, and maybe moan and groan about who has to take down the tree this year.

Oh and we usually have a nice dinner, but that's pretty much iiiit. :| I'm not saying that we don't get gifts or anything, we just don't wrap them, and we use them before Christmas, because we're not very traditional like that. :| I kind of like the way we do Christmas though. Less hassle.

Yeah our Christmas festivities last for maybe like, half an hour at the most. xD;

Uh it goes like any other day except I open presents. That's it.

My christmases are pretty simple nowadays. It's basically wake up whenever I decide it's time to get up (which is usually around 10am) mozy downstairs and get a cup of coffee and either open presents if everyone else is up or browse the internet til everyone else is up. My family usually eats christmas dinner around 3 or 4, depending on when the ham comes out and the pies go in. After dinner there's usually someone asleep on the couch, whether it's me or my oldest brother is the question, and the rest of my family plays board games or watches american football.

Same thing as you jasonresno, we tend to wake up and head downstairs around 8AM. We used to tackle the family room (where our stockings are) first and the living room (where the Christmas tree is), but we've reverse it in the last few years.

We'll have the log-burning channel on on the TV in the family rooms while we dig through our stockings and I'll have my iPod mini full of 10+ hours of Christmas music hooked up the speaker dock in the living room.

Once everything is unwrapped we'll have breakfast (usually something like fresh waffles or pancakes shaped like Christmas trees) while watching the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade.

No time to use anything we just got because we're off to visit family. We change out of our Christmas pyjamas into...more appropriate clothing, gather up all the gift for the kiddies and any food we're bringing, and drive off to visit relatives. Don't come back until...after midnight at some point?

Personally, despite the lack of presents, I like Christmas Eve. better. For us its a much more casual yet personal experience than Christmas Day is. We visit the same people we'll see the following day, but it's different. Different mood. I have lots of little cousins so it being the night that Santa comes to visit is a big deal for them. I have a bunch of Christmas/Santa sites that I'll have them visit throughout the night because they track Santa and put videos up. Even if the graphics are horrible, they're too young to understand that it's computer generated so they just love it. And there's website where you type in a name and you see if you're on the naughty or nice list and all sorts of stuff I do with them. Dinner is more casual. We're a Mediterranean family, so Christmas Eve. for us means lots and lots of fish. But, instead of a sit down dinner we have more of a buffet-style set up for most of the night and then a couple of big dishes at the end. It's a cool, more social kind of experience. And we watch Christmas specials and movies. And, again, don't get home until late at night.

We wake up super early, open presents and then we all go back to whatever we were doing.

Me and my siblings have developed a strict routine for Christmas morning. The rule is that the first to wake up MUST wake everyone else up (besides my parents, they always sleep in). Then we all brush our teeth and run downstairs like wild animals. Since my room is the biggest, we take all the presents and a garbage bag up there and then start the unwrapping. We know exactly what we got so there's no real surprises, but you just can't help but feel that surge of joy when you see that game you've wanted for so long. After that, either two things will happen: we'll eat breakfast and play all day or we'll play until diner rolls by.

And that's a Gummy Christmas.

Well, we have to have a rule of no presents before seven, cause if we didnt, they'd be gone by six. so normally, we wake up at about seven, then take our stockings through to our parents bedroom, where we all sit on the bed, drinking cups of tea (guess my nationality from that XD). Then, we go around, opening one present each, always getting annoyed when its dad's turn, because he's always half asleep and has to be prodded frequently. Our stocking presents from 'father christmas' are normally silly little things, eg funny socks (they exist!) and dancing windup robots (i actually got that once). After that, we go downstairs and have breakfast - croissants and pain au chocolat with pink champagne. don't ask me why, I've no idea. After breakfast (normally about 8:30 now) Then, we sit down on around the tree with the fire on, with me sitting under the tree - where all the presents from friends and family are. I then hand out presents one at a time and we all 'ooooh' and 'aaaaah' whenever anybody open's their's. We all get annoyed at mum, because she's a teacher and always manages to brainwash her pupils into giving her presents. After the presents, we sit around, playing withour new toys and eating our new chocolate, while mum groans about how we're all going to hell because we can't be bothered to go to church at christmas and we all laugh at how she clearly doesn't want to go either. Then, we play with our new stuff until lunch and that is our christmas morning.

What used to happen is that I wake up about two hours before my parents did and get all hyper about opening up my present(s), despite having found where they had been hidden and learning what they were at least two weeks beforehand (call it tradition).

Now, I just sleep late. Christmas is little more than a normal day for me.

It starts off with my brother waking me up at about 6 in the morning to open presents from the stockings. Oh joy, I spend the next 2 hours trying to be more awake.

Then we make the parents a cup of tea and they come downstairs to the tree and open bigger presents with us.

Then this Christmas we'll be going over to some friends to play charades and other silly games and have Christmas dinner.

Describing my Christmas morning is difficult, I tend to sleep through it.

By the time I get up and open what's been gotten for me, everyone else has opened what they got and half of them have buggered off to somewhere else, leaving me with some peace — I don't like how people watch me when I open something wrapped.

I wake up at like 5 o clock, yes, in the morning, and sneak in my stocking. General present opening time is 7am, and my mum loves to take photos of me opening my stuff. Then we'll have breakfast, and get ready to go out to see other family members and exchange gifts. Then, we'll come back home, and will be on her way with cooking the dinner.

This year, we'll be making a trip up to where my Nanna is buried. We're going to open a special present in her "presence", and put up some cards. And decorate her garden and bush I think ^_^

The rest of my family gets up at about 6AM. I will have gotten to sleep about two hours beforehand due to my messed-up internal clock. I will want to sleep till two in the afternoon, but someone will wake me up before 7:30. I will groggily open presents, mutter a few stock "thank yous", then saunter off to bed again, usually running into at least one wall in my sleep-deprived stupor.

In a couple years I expect this routine to change to "Get up, get dressed, attend company board meeting, and discuss third quarter earnings."

We all wake up around 8 AM and we go downstairs and open all of our stockings. Then my Dad makes pancakes for breakfast (and bacon for him and my mom), we eat, and my Dad does his business in the bathroom. Then we go and open presents. Once all the present opening is done, we usually start messing around with some of the gifts and my mom gets the dinner ready and we eat a nice turkey dinner around 1 PM.

Well, it's hard to get to sleep on Christmas eve, but as always, it's hard to wake up the next day. So I come down about 9am, my brother comes in through to the living room yelling "TROLL IN THE DUNGEON" as some kind of Christmas day traditon when he wakes up (don't ask). I'm usually up last from when brothers and sister, so I walk through the swamp of wrapping paper and open my stocking presents. When my mum and dad get down we have our other presents

Christmas day is usually the only day I get to sleep in until noon. XD; Usually my parents are busy cleaning the house and I hear vacuuming and people walking in and out of my room, or my mum who walks in my room and tidies it up and opens the blinds.. D: And then they're preparing all the food and what not.. Not much of a christmas morning. XD;

We don't really open presents until we've had lunch, which is usually around 4pm.

I love Christmas. <3 XD My Christmas Eve is actually much more of an affair then the morning is, however.

We wake up around 8 AM [my brother and I around the same time, weird. XD]. We always have to wake up our older brother up because he sleeps in. Mom is usually up, or she might be resting from all the work she's been doing. *cough* XDD. We walk to her bedroom to tell her we're ready, and you are definitely not allowed to look at the tree w/presents until she's ready, haha.

Then we all go down, and ooh and ahh. My two brothers and I all have separate piles, and we usually take turns opening presents. Christmas music is usually playing in the background, and when we're done there are big piles of wrapping paper and lots of new things to do, heh.

Then the next few hours are spent with our new gadgets and games. I'm not sure about breakfast... I can't remember ever having anything because I'm usually too busy with my new stuff. XD

My grandparents come down a few days before Christmas. On Christmas Eve we might cook a few things ahead of time for the big Christmas dinner, and then a lot of times we'll go out separately and buy some last-minute presents. We'll watch The Christmas Story on TBS at least a few times during the whole day, since they do 24 hours of it every year - it drives my mom up the wall because she hates that movie, but it's a classic.

Then we go to Christmas Eve candlelight service at church that night, and usually we'll go to another one later on, since our church's is fairly early and I have to take care of the music for it - so I really don't get to be with my family. So we'll usually go to another local church's service at 9:30 (ours is at 7 this year) where I can actually participate and be with my family during the service.

We come home and mom goes out in the dining room to wrap presents while I go lock myself in my room and finish wrapping presents as well. Then we go to bed and when 12AM rolls around I'll get on my Wii and send my VC/WiiWare gifts to online friends, then stay up and chat on MSN for a while before going to sleep.

It used to be that I could never sleep Christmas Eve night, and I'd wake everyone up at like 6-7AM to unwrap presents. Now I usually have to be waken up, and it's probably around 8:30ish. Then everyone goes out to the living room, we unwrap presents, during which we take our time and just kinda enjoy our family time. It probably takes an hour or so to get that done and clean up the paper and stuff. Then everyone puts together/plays with their gifts, and then we all pitch in and help with dinner, usually with Christmas carols playing.

We have a big Christmas turkey dinner with all the trimmings (probably like...a 10-12 course meal) around 2 in the afternoon, then we just spend the rest of the afternoon watching Christmas movies on TV as a family, or fiddling around with everyone's Christmas gifts and stuff. Then we have a tradition every Christmas night that we play a game of Monopoly, which I usually wind up winning.

By that time my parents and grandparents are just about ready for bed, and so they go and I stay up for a while and play my new games, check up on PC/NN/other places, and talk on MSN. And that's pretty much Christmas in my house, in a nutshell. XD

My Christmas morning consists of waking up and mosying on down to wherever the tree happens to be thar year. We actually alternate between my relatives in New Jersey and our own house every year. They usually have it in their living room, and we'll have it either down stairs in the bar (Yes, my house has a bar XD), or in our living room as well.

Anyway, we just sit around with coffee or juice, waiting for everyone to get up. My grandma makes italian doughnuts...I forget what they're called, but they're really doughy and have powerdered sugar on them. My uncle also makes his famous cinnamon roll, which is actually pretty good as well. So when everyone is gathered, we start opening presents...usually just going around in a little circle until they're all gone. Then the rest of the day is pretty much everyone chatting and/or looking at what they got until dinner time, which is around 4. I think we have something different every year. I know we've had turkey and lamb a bunch of times.

And that's pretty much it...nothing too spectacular ^___^

My sis and I usually wake up in the morning, usually a short amount of time before the rest of the family. I just wait downstairs with my dog and sis, havin' some pop tarts since breakfeast won't be cooked, due to x-mas' hype. Then, when the rest of the family is up, we start emptying out the stockings. Afterwards, we open the dogs presents (yes, he gets presents too XD). After that, the rest of the presents are opened, and the morning begins to die down, we all just continue on with our normal daily life.

anways this is how it goes: we wake up at 7 oclock (well I do) and I wait for my mum and dad to wake up while I do that I open the present in my stocking (last year it was pokemon diamond) and then when it's 8 we go downstairs. Then me and my sis open our preasents in our sacks (theres quite alot of them) and then my mum and dad open their presents. after that my nan and grandad and(not this year) my grandma and grandad. when everyone's eaten dinner my nan and grandad go home and then my grandma and grandad sleep over.

Last year was our family's only proper Christmas morning and it was because of me that it happened. I insisted on us eating breakfast before opening our presents, after waking up around 10:30 to find everyone else in the house awake and sitting in the living room; brothers around the tree, sister sitting on the couch half asleep. My brothers obviously wanted to open their presents due to their constant complaining. In previous years, we often all woke up around three in the morning and spent about ten or so minutes opening presents and that was basically our Christmas. I wanted something else last year, so I insisted that we'd have a proper Christmas and, aside from the constant complaining coming from my annoying brothers, we did.

After we ate breakfast, we moved over to the living room and sat on the couch. Yet again, my brothers were running around the tree. I didn't really care. I'm much less into Christmas these past years due to childish behavior coming from those two. It's kinda sad, really. Eventually the time came to open presents. We usually have a designated gift-giver (worst thing ever; I'd like to fetch my own presents, thank you very much) that hands out our presents. Last year, I believe that was my younger brother who did that. Once the gifts are all unwrapped, my brothers usually run in their room, my sister tends to stay in the living room wandering around doing.. God knows what, and I tend to either stay downstairs for a couple of hours and just relax on the couch next to the tree, or go upstairs and pretend as if nothing happened.

Then comes, about four or so hours later (which was around 12:00 p.m. last year) the time to visit family. This is the part of Christmas that I dread. First off, we visit about.. to relative families; My grandparents and my great-grandparents. The whole family is usually gathered at my great-grandparents house, however, for the majority of the year's holidays, so it's rather crowded. That's where the good, expensive presents are.

Once that's done, which usually ends around 10:00 p.m., we come home and have dinner at our house. I can't explain what happens then because.. well, that's the part of Christmas that I don't tend to remember (even though I should). So, yeah.. that was Christmas the way I like it (last year). Though, it won't be the same at all this year for various reasons that will go unmentioned in this reply.

Well usually, im the first up so i wait till around 9:30 or 10:00 and wake my parents up, then i open my stocking up (because its in my room) And then after that everyone goes to the bathroom and then, i get one present, my brothers each get one present and we repeat at a time. So i open, My brother opens, Other Brother opens.

On christmas day I just hear my little sister come screaming out the door saying SANTA CAME! I laugh and enjoy a wounderful day of relaxation and open and give presents to friends and family. There is always a nice fire on the side with milk and cookies next the the tree. We look outside to see rain drops on the street its such a wounderful sight. looking at my little sister's face when she sees what she got from santa it just opens my eyes to life. I wish christmas was everyday because on how you fell when you see little kids opening presents and looking at their face and see that surprise on their face. (makes me so happy)

We usually spend Christmas Eve visiting relatives and opening gifts; the only real gifts left on Christmas are the ones from 'Santa'. I know about the whole Santa thing and my parents know I do, but I still get things from him. :P

So, I wake up. No matter how early I manage to wake up, my younger brother's already awake before me and playing with his stuff. I go through what's under my section of the Christmas tree; usually raising an eyebrow at a couple of the things Santa thought I'd like. If I see something I really wanted or just something that really catches my eye, I'll play around with it for a little while before breakfast. Oh, and I pretty much always forget to look in my stocking.

Breakfast consists of pumpkin roll, which is something very amazing that I only get around Christmastime. Sometimes I try hiding the pumpkin roll at the back of the fridge or something so I can have it all to myself, but my mom always finds it. xD

We spend Christmas Day at my house; eventually my whole family will come over and we'll eat a big dinner, but until then I get to lie around in my pajamas (usually going back to sleep after getting up in vain for the sole purpose of beating my brother).

Simple.

I wake up bright and early and bug my parents to let me open my presents. XD They usually tell me to go to bed but...I don't. XD When I was younger, I used to stay up and play with my toys all night, especially because Santa had already came and it was hard for me to sleep. XD

CHRISTMAS♥ I'M SO EXCITEDDDDasdfghjkl. On Christmas Eve, my family all hangs out and for dinner we have a whole bunch of finger-foods. We get so much, that we can't even eat it all and end up throwing half of it out. :x We usually watch a Christmas movie or something, and just chill out in the living room where the Christmas tree is. It's really nice. I enjoy spending time with my family, especially around this time. Oh, and my brother and I get ONE gift early, and it's ALWAYS a new pair of pjs to wear to bed. XD

Christmas morning we wake up around 7:00-7:30am. We get hot chocolate or coffee, and then start opening the presents. ♥ That usually takes an hour or two at the most. Then we move our gifts to our rooms, and eat breakfast. Then my grandparents and younger cousin usually come up for the day, and we crack open our gifts. I usually spend the day in my room with new video games. XD; but meh. My Christmas is pretty simple, but I love it.

While I help my stepmom with Christmas dinner. And then we will eat it and then just relax and watch a movie together. :3

Well, I have usually gotten up early awaiting the time at which I can open presents.

But my parents had always slept in, and so did my brother.

But this year, I'm gonna sleep in now.

So HA.

And we get right up and tear into the presents, and THEN we eat. After basking in the glory of shiny things.

My Christmas isn't anything special XD I'm always the first to wake up. I always wake up around seven and I don't even want to. I watch some TV because I like to see what's on then I get on the computer to wish all of my friends a good Christmas. Normally everyone get's up around eleven or ten. We open presents while my step dad takes pictures and after all that we normally mess around with the stuff we got. It's never anything special, but I like it simple =]

My alarm is set to seven 'o clock. I wake up my little sister, and we take our stockings to my parents' room (taking care not to look under the tree along the way). We go through the stockings, and then we head out to the tree and open presents =)

We make breakfast, and the day normally goes by slowly (in a good way) until dinner, in which case we'll either make it ourselves or go to a family member's house. Often, we celebrate Christmas with the whole family (Cousins, aunts, uncles, everyone in my extended family) on a day we can all make it.

My extended family is extremely close (both literally and figuratively) <3 Christmas is easily my favorite holiday because of them (*cough*andpresents*coughcough*)

=DD

I wake up, take atleast half an hour to get out of my bed, check the presents and go back into the dark hole I live in my room.

I usually wake up at about two in the morning, see if I have any presents, go back to bed, wake up, eat breakfast with the family, and open the presents. Then we play around with whatever it is we got for Christmas. Then our Grandparents will come over and we'll talk and stuff and have Christmas lunch with the Grandparents and the rest of our family. After that we have our Christmas dessert thing... (which is always very, very nice.)

So... that's my Christmas.
