Hi guys!

2 quick questions regarding Santa sack protocal!

Question 1:

Are your goodies from Santa individually wrapped? Or are they just in a sack or stocking etc?

Question 2:

When are you allowed to open your gifts from Santa? when you wake up? Or fo you have to wait for everyone to be awake?

When I was younger we did it as follows.

Our beds had a stocking on it, that was filled with small gifts ie chocolate coins, toy car etc.

The main gifts, were all individually wrapped. And we were allowed to open one, sometimes two, before the rest of the family arrived.



However, we now open all of our gifts on Christmas eve, as that is the GF's family's tradition. Though everything is still individually wrapped.

But the Santa sack you could go thru as soon as you were awake. Cool!

Yes, but it was a stock as opposed to a sack. (slight size variance there)

When we woke up the stocking was hanging from the end of our bed nice n full :D

What we used to have was a stocking in our own rooms, everything would be individually wrapped (to add to the suspense!) and we could open them when we woke up.
The main presents under the tree couldn't be opened until after 7am!

It depends... In Brazil we opened everything at midnight of Chritmas Eve to Christmas day - even the kids (of coiurse the ones who could stay awake - otherwise early morning on Christmas day).

Here we do differently. Because everyone got under 3 year olds we get together on a convenient time for all those little ones to be around. But only when everyone are around.

For those who have a stocking and main presents under the tree, are the main presents from Santa or from the parents? This is an unresolved issue in our family now we have kids (I grew up with only the stocking presents from Santa, she grew up with all the presents from Santa)

EVERYTHING individually wrapped, even the stuff in the stockings.

Christmas Eve, a time is defined - e.g. 7.30am before which presents may be touched, but not unwrapped. This gives adults time for a shi, showe & a shav.

Traditionally in our home, on Christmas Eve, after the kids are in bed, the adults choose one present to give to each other early.

Presents under the tree are from friends and family, presents in the stocking / sack / pillowcase are from Santa...
