Family Traditions: No frenzy, no Sir…


This is a rule, a traditional rule in this house… It works well for us and makes the effort worthwhile.

Only one person may be opening a present at any one time….

Ever…

Honestly.

And yes, this means that we can make the present opening last all day, either side of Christmas Lunch, sometimes after tea and occasionally have some put bu for boxing day too…

We all watch each other opening our pressies and if we wish to, we stop to play. If one of us has to leave the room for any reason all pressy opening stops.

There is no frenzy and all presents are appreciated and examined before moving on.
