    Santa always left us individual piles of presents on the living room floor. Our Christmas tree was always in our hall when we were kids.

    Our Santa presents were never wrapped either that could be another poll !

    Another here for on the couch.

    Wife thinks the bedroom is better. I told her that was weird. Looks like I'm right :D

    We always opened them in the living room. Maybe not under the tree, there's usually too many, but the tree was always in the living room too.

    Yeah Santa was a big fan of the price stickers in our house too. Not wrapped either. If Santa was too lazy to take off the price stickers he definitely wasn't bothering with wrapping paper. :D

    Mine usually weren't wrapped either!

    In the sitting room. There were too many kids in the house to have them anywhere near the tree so they were evenly spread out to avoid confusion.
    Presents from people other than Santa went under the tree.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,068 tfak85


    Presents were unwrapped (until after my Santa days) and left close to the tree. We were never allowed to go down to the living room on our own, the absolute excitement of opening the door!!

    In the sitting room beside the couch.

    Presents wrapped under the tree & stocking on bedroom door,good times :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 141 ✭✭ Deedeecupcake


    Stockings from were at the bottom of the bed but as we got older they moved to outside the door. Then presents were sorted into a pile for everyone all around the sitting room, but had been waiting under the tree until Xmas Eve (bar Santa Pressies)

    Split into piles for each of us on the sofas in our sitting room, where the tree was. Unwrapped, until after a couple of us stopped believing, then somehow they started getting wrapped for the others!

    Presents unwrapped under the tree in the sitting room and stockings (actual school knee socks) at the end of the beds.

    Santa left ours on the living room floor unwrapped.

    Good times :)


  • Administrators, Business & Finance Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 16,772 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Toots


    In the living room. There were 3 of us and my parents have a big hearth/fireplace so we'd bring a kitchen chair in for each of us on xmas eve, and hang our stocking on the chair, then the next morning when we came down our presents would be arranged on and around the chair. :)

    When I was a kid, just in the middle of the sitting room generally.

    These days, for my kids, Santy leaves them beside the fireplace.

    Main asked-for Santa presents unwrapped but surprise ones wrapped.


  • Registered Users Posts: 6,331 How Strange


    In the sitting room. There'd be 3 piles of toys and a card with the name written on it sitting on each of them.


  • Registered Users Posts: 515 ✭✭✭ shamelessidiot


    Nobody else had theirs left on the kitchen table?


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 12,078 ✭✭✭✭ LordSutch


    End of the bed in a pillow case.
