The vast majority of those I know in San Antonio have similar celebrations, with a very small minority waiting until Christmas morning to open gifts, followed by a meal and day of family and friends.
In my travels around the country, I find that other areas all do the Christmas Day celebration instead of Eve. So I am going to ask the readers -- which do you do? In your experience, is your celebration style a San Antonio thing, or do you know others across the country who do this, too? I have a feeling the answers might be surprising.
Oh yeah, and a hearty Holiday to all, no matter how you celebrate it!
