    I had no idea this was a fairly new trend. My whole life we’ve opened something on x-mas eve. Now we put a bunch of dollar store gifts in a big trash bag and the kids open and then will exchange with their siblings if they don’t like what they opened. These are such great ideas!

      That’s a great idea, Therese! Thanks for sharing. I think we actually got to open one gift on Christmas Eve when I was a kid, too. I’m thinking it’s more the idea of a specific “Christmas Eve box” that’s become trendy recently, with items they could potentially use on that night, like Christmasy pajamas, for example, or something to sort of take the edge off the excitement for Christmas morning (which would hopefully help kids fall asleep more easily!).
