Merry Christmas Eve

I never understood families that opened Christmas presents on Christmas Eve. How do you have the necessary build-up of excitement? The anxiety that you won't be able to fall asleep and Santa would skip your house? And what about the next morning (technically it's morning at 4am) when you run to the tree and feel the wave of relief that you managed to land on Santa's Nice List in spite of starting the garage on fire. And then you wonder just how good Santa is at accounting for his nice list, and just what else you can get away with. Then you start poking around at the wrapped presents to see if Santa brought you the flamethrower you'd requested above all other gifts.
