    Default When do your presents go under the tree!?

    Ours go under Christmas Eve (when the kids are asleep) The kids leave a beer and cookies for santa and a carrot and reindeer food (rolled oats and glitter) for the reindeers, I read them a Christmas story and let them know that they have to have a big sleep because Santa is going to come during the night. I love their little faces in the morning when they wake up and see all the presents under the tree!
    But, I have noticed most people put their presents under the tree much earlier. So when do your presents go under the tree?

    As they are bought & wrapped. Though 'Santa' sneaks them out on Christmas eve.

    This is the first year that Jasper's been old enough to not touch. Next year our little girl will be 9 months old a so back to Christmas eve until she's older.

    As soon as they are wrapped. The ones from santa on Christmas eve. Even though the kids can't read, I just want to see the reaction!

    Growing up, we always put them under the tree as soon as they were bought/wrapped... then one year we were burgled a few weeks before Christmas and they stole all the presents from under the tree

    So for the next nearly 20 years I never put presents under the tree in advance, until this year *touch wood*.

    All the presents from our parents and from us to each other/parents went under when wrapped, santa leaves his when everyone is asleep on Christmas eve!

    My mum always left them all hidden until Christmas eve. I put them under the tree as soon as wrapped, it looks so empty without them under there. Obviously Santa's will appear magically overnight Christmas Eve.
