    BUILT, not bought...
    totall free for all...

    both halves of the family are so big, if we did them one by one, christmas would never end.

    Plus everyone is rushing to have more food, or to have a drink.

    Lots.
    One at a time. Your family and friends spent the money on you so you should take the time to showoff and respect your gifts.

    we do Santa gifts first...and they arent wrapped...so the kids get to enjoy all their toys immediately...then we wait on my aunt and uncle to get there...eat lunch...and then open all the wrapped gifts...we pass them all out and then go one by one in a big circle...

    On Christmas eve, everyone opens one gift. On Christmas morning, it's one gift at a time, which used to make for a very long morning.

    Maybe in the dark, kids are always up before the crack of dawn and the power has been out for 3 hours with the power company driving up and down our very rural county road just trying to find the problem:eek:.....

    usually one at a time though......

    Two at a time really, but since it's more like one at a time I voted for that instead of free for all.
