I guess it doesn’t matter. Just takes the Christmas out of it a little for me. Then if I am the only one to wait, whomever bought for me thinks I am ungrateful because I’m not posting thank you pics along with everybody else.
Oh well, things change. Not everyone feels the same way I do about Christmas. For me it isn’t so much the gift. It’s the wondering who is my Secret Santa...the excitement and anticipation..the fun my cats have (They know it’s for them.) waiting and then getting to celebrate the box, the torn wrapping paper, and then, finally, what’s inside! A flurry of excitement with choosing which thing they want to play with, eat, or cuddle up to first. It’s a time to really appreciate the loving care and excitement my Santa put into choosing what he or she believes is the perfect gift for us. It’s a special time. It’s Christmas.

It’s not just another package in the mail to open up when I get a chance.

I will be waiting until Christmas Eve or Christmas day to open our gift....because it’s a special thing to me and the gang.
I'm a waiter too

I don’t feel that way at all. I think as long as pics are posted by the day after Christmas it’s all good. Won’t lie though, I get antsy waiting for the opening of the gifts I sent. ;)

Ok ok ok... I couldn’t stand it anymore! Our package arrived several days ago and I’ve been waiting for a bit to open it. Tonight I gave in. It was Ellie’s fault...she was being playful and cute so I knew she would have a lot of excitement for the opening.



Our secret Santa knew we had a DaBird, and got us some lovely refills. That is our usual toy so I can guarantee they will be used up.



Some of the toys



I think her favorite was the little fish taco catnip toys. She went ape over them!



She got a favorite snack, rabbit bits!

Also a BEAUTIFUL blanket. The tag indicated we should share. I’ve threatened to hog it for myself but really it will be hers and for me to borrow occasionally.



I received a sweet little mug with a lovely, thoughtful note attached.



And though it wasn’t a gift, Ellie appreciated playtime in the wrapping paper :)




@Hildegard
I really think the most special thing for my personal experience was all of the little notes you wrote on the tags and some of the gifts, as well as the card included. They all made me smile. You have truly made this a very special Shynxmas. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Did we ever come to a consensus on whether we are going to wait until Christmas, or open our packages when they arrive?
