I never wanted to open my gifts before Christmas. I just didn't want to spoil the surprise for Christmas morning. On the other hand, my Mom was terrible. I remember every year when my Dad wasn't home, my Mom would open her gifts from him and then wrap them up and tell me not to say anything. Now my 20 yr. old son does the same thing. I guess this issue skipped a generation.:jumping:

I'm definitely of the same vein that I never want to know what I'm getting. I think most of my family is the same way. CB is snoopy and got caught, once! LOL I don't trust her at all, now, about looking for gifts. :rolleyes:

I can remember almost tearing the house apart searching for the gifts as a child. I think I stumbled on them in my mom's closet once.

Nowadays, I just leave everything till Christmas Day.

Yeah, it was always my brothers who wanted to find the presents. I remember one year I actually looked with them because my Mom had hidden them really well and it was fun. However that christmas morning was disappointing because there was no surprise. I helped them look other years 'cause I wanted to be like my big brothers, but I never looked again once we found them

My parents would let us open one on christmas eve so we never went looking as this helped knowing if we were good we could open one before christmas.:santa2::snowman:

Between my wife and I, I am the bad one, but not about my gifts. I can't wait for her to open hers so I pester her constantly with "You wanna open your gift now?". She tries to resist but more often than not she gets tired of hearing it and opens them early.

I am not the snooper in our family although one year mom let me see everything I got and then I wasn't surprised at christmas. This will be the first year since I have been married that I don't know what I am getting for CHristmas. I was in the hospiotal when he did my shopping for me. He tries to guess what his presents are so I won't let him under the tree this year. It always ruins it for me when he guesses correctly.

Well, I guess, I was the bad one every Christmas..

When everybody was sleeping, I always used to go under the tree and see what was in those really wonderful Christmas boxes..
Of course, that was happening when I was a kid... Now it just got worst.. :elf1::elf1:

When packages arrived from the in-laws, I'd get some scissors and slide them slowly under the end flap, and then if the tape didn't come loose, I'd slice it and peek at the gift. Then I'd put new tape over the old tape. My husband was at work and he never checked the end of the packages to see if there were two layers of tape. One time I accidentally tore the paper and had to re-wrap the gift in new paper. But now I never peek. I think the turning point was when DH promised to buy me exactly what I wanted so I wouldn't be disappointed about wasting money for Christmas. Eventually we just started buying our own gifts and having the other person wrap it for Christmas! But we never know what the kids will give us!

LOL how funny.....my mother was a very good guesser and so she didn't have to open presents early, she had an uncanny ability to guess her presents correctly. Perhaps it was because she worked in a department store and she just knew the size and weight of everything

I used to be a bad snooper when i was a kid, me and my 2 sisters used to go looking round the house when my mum and dad where watching tv down stairs haha. It stopped when i was a teenager probably because i was out with my fiends more but i must admit i love not knowing and opening then christmas morning now.

Just thought i would add i have the best place to hide my childrens christmas pesents...we have a cupboard in our room thats so high you have to get the ladder out. dont think my kids will ever get up there....hopefully.
