I am a very patient person when it comes to opening gifts. I always wait until the rest of the family is done opening theirs, to open mine. I want to see what they all got, I can wait. I learned lesson when I was 10 or 13 years old.
We got one or two presents for Christmas, never more than that. Some friends told me that they open their gifts ahead of time and re-wrap them, so their parents wouldn't know, because they couldn't stand to wait. So I decided to try it. I opened both my packages and they both contained the same exact sweater only one was pink and one was white. I didn't like them at all. Now I knew what I was getting, I didn't like them and it ruined the excitement of Christmas for me. I dreaded opening them Christmas Eve. I never did that again, ever. I like to be surprised!!
