    In my day, presents from the family got wrapped and put under the tree as and when they were ready. Nothing like seeing that pile getting bigger and bigger as Advent wore on. The magic of Christmas morning was knowing that you could leap out of bed and go downstairs and there'd be a different pile of presents waiting. :cool:

    In my day you got one present.:(
    I can remember and count on both hands all the toys I got for every Christmas put together.

    Ohhh the big Santa wrapping presents debate. In my house Santa always wrapped the presents but in my husband's house he never did. Might be due to fact only 2 in my family but 4 children in my husband's ;) Anyway Santa comes now to our house for our little boy + lots of debate over whether Santa wraps presents or not. To settle it I asked in work if Santa wraps presents or not. The majority went with no wrapping so that's what we went with.

    Oh the confusion! RTE reported that milk and 'cookies' should be left out for Santa. That's all good. So the two small ones were sorting the mince pie (cookies??!) and the younger one was sorting the milk. But, she said, how will it keep cool, it will be too warm and it will go off before santa arrives! Anyway mum has agreed she will put some ice cubes in it to keep it cool and the offerings + carrots are all displayed. The Night Before Christmas has been read and off they go... For the first time.

    In the 50s Santa never wrapped the presents. Presents from Aunts and Uncles etc were wrapped. Seeing the photo/drawing on the box of the train set or Meccano was magic that you examined for ages before you even opened the box.

    Hasn’t been here yet.
    Girls not long gone amd he a while before it’s safe.

    Santa hasn’t time to wrap here, all others are wrapped.

    He doesn’t leave them under the tree either. One chair full of goodies for each girl, even though one is 16 ;)

    Not here yet. One little sh1t is still wide awake. The other won't be going asleep anytime soon, but she's 15, so it's allowed

    Called here three hours ago, no pictures though, different tradition to most with the big man calling and handling the gifts to the kids


  • Registered Users Posts: 698 ✭✭✭Cushtie


    We used to have that when we were young. Loved it. It still happens in some houses where the kids then are parents now. I miss it but no one around here does it.
