For children, opening presents on Christmas morning is one of the most anticipated events of the year.
From the moment they realize Santa has finally come:
To finding the most desired gift of the season under the tree:
To opening a package that contains a new furry friend:
There is the pure joy that comes when a child gets exactly what they wished for:
And sometimes, even tears of happiness:
For some, the wrapping paper is just as — if not more — exciting than the gift itself:
But the excitement of opening gifts doesn't diminish as one grows older:
In fact, the excitement can increase as the years go by:
Eventually, there comes a moment when you realize that giving is much better than receiving:
When watching your parents open their gifts becomes more fulfilling than opening your own:
And when you discover that the most special gifts, are not those that can be bought at a store — they are those that come from the heart:
Whatever Christmas presents mean for your family, may they bring you joy and happiness. Merry Christmas!
