Poll: When is the right time to open the presents?
Give it to us straight. Be honest.

IT’S COMING UP on lunchtime on Christmas Day and some of you will already know what Santa has brought.

Others will have a different tradition and presents won’t be opened until after the turkey or other festive feasting is over.

When is the right time in your household to dive into the presents?

Poll Results:

First thing this morning (6715)
We opened some on Christmas Eve (1569)
At lunchtime, before the dinner (1388)
After the dinner, whenever that is (1188)
