You can tell a lot about a person by the way they open their gifts on Christmas morning, and chances are you'll recognize many of the characters in this video during your own unwrapping ceremonies. The little brother who still, at 28 years old, insists on tearing the paper to shreds. The cousin who peeks and shakes her gifts so she can figure out what's inside. The grandma who, ever so thrifty, will carefully part tape from paper in order to prevent making any marks that might leave the—now neatly folded—wrapping paper un-reusable.
They're all a part of what makes Christmas morning so special. We laugh when bows go flying in a frenzy, and good-heartedly tease dad when he stacks every gift to the side without opening them—he insists it's because he doesn't want to be the center of attention, but we end up watching him unwrap his gifts last, and for longest. The way our family and friends unwrap their gifts… it becomes tradition, and the traditions create indelible memories.
It's because we all know the real treat of celebrating the holidays with the people you love isn't about the presents themselves, but how wonderful it is to give and share them. So share this video with the folks who make your Christmas morning so special (and, yeah, give them a good-natured mocking while you're at it).
