My wife and I are pretty non-traditional when it comes to Christmas. She and I don't exchange presents at all. We focus on our son instead. Rather than wrapping gifts, we slowly hand presents out to him throughout the day. This way everything gets a chance to get used and nothing gets lost in the shuffle. This year was primarily games for his Nintendo Switch so he had about an hour of game play on most of the ones he'd received.

When I was a kid, my immediate family started whenever the kids woke up Christmas day, usually between 7am and 9am. Then we'd go over to my grandmother's for the extended family celebration and gift exchange. Now my parents still like to wrap a couple things and leave them under their tree for me, but it's all very informal since its just us three, so whatever time Christmas day I feel like going over, or even the day after.

Usually morning after my parents woke up. There was a gift from my godfather which we opened on the Eve. Something which I do with my cousin's kid. Its like a good sandwich. You get something majorish, then the "Santa" gifts then the other relatives gifts when meeting them at their house or whereever we were going to go that afternoon.
Its sad what I didn't want to happened wasn't what happened
