Wrap them with gorgeous colorful bows, that I have no ability to tie.

7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child?
For as long as I lived with my parents, we had a tradition. My mom would be the first one up and would wake up my dad and I. The tea kettle was put on and we would open our stockings while the water boiled. After tea/coffee was made the presents would be passed out by yours truly. We would all open our presents at the same time, with piles of wrapping paper covering the floor. The dogs and cats would leap thru the wrapping paper and I would attempt to stick bows on the cats. Then my parents would all curl up on coach and survey and play with our presents.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa?
When I was old enough to recognize my dad's handwriting. I even remember the present, it was a fishing pole. I think it was about 7 years old.

We didn't when I was younger, but now my mom gets so excited that she can barely contain herself and we allow only one to be opened.
