Growing up I had 3 days of Christmas gift excitement. Day 1 was Christmas eve. After dinner the family would gather around the tree and we would exchange all the gifts we got for each other. This would be all the gifts that had accumulated under the tree over the past month. Day 2 was Christmas morning. We would wake up and come downstairs to find 1 new present for each of us from Santa. This would always be a big grand finale type gift like a bicycle or a millennium falcon. Then day 3 was the day after Christmas when I went over to my friend Chris’s house and got to check out all the cool stuff that he got that year. We rarely got any duplicate gifts so that day was almost as exciting as the first two.
