Best Things to Do On Christmas Morning (Besides Presents)

The Top Ten

1 Wake Up Really Early

When me & my brother were kids we would always wake up super early Christmas morning like 5am or 6am we would be so excited! We'd run downstairs into the lounge see all the presents, We had TONS & our jaws would just drop & our faces would light up at the site of all the presents, We would run back up the stairs into my my parents bedroom shout at my mom & dad "IT'S CHRISTMAS! " Jump all over there bed until they got up then once everyone was up we'd all go down stairs & open the presents. My parents spoilt us rotten every year but we were always Grateful & knew we were very lucky to have all these gifts as both of my parents had fairly paid jobs. We knew the real meaning of Christmas though. In the end My parents banned us from getting up until the sun came up on Christmas morning, they got sick of being woke up at 6am On Christmas day lol In the winter the sun rises later. I'd be up early as usual but I'd sit by my window waiting for sunrise LOL Used to get so excited when I was a ...more

If I woke up early which I do on Christmas morning, I would always just go and turn on my fireplace or turn on a Christmas movie in the living room, while I admire the beautiful tree and presents underneath it while I drink hot chocolate or tea. Oh, and I'd ALSO probably just wake my mom and siblings up maybe about 30 45 minutes later.

I do this a lot, I go make a pot of coffee, fix myself a cup, look at all those presents under the tree with the beautiful whie snow in the background of the window, and go back to my room, make room for my gifts, and play music until its 7, then I HAVE THE BEST TIME OF MY LIFE!

I'm 16 and I'm always the first one up on Christmas Day I wake the kids up and then me mum and dad even though usually they are up before us

2 Wake Up Before Everyone Else

Every year! Love Christmas so much, Even though we're in August... I'm in the spirit anytime after July!

I just absolutely love waking up before my mom and dad and sisters and brother, because I get to be the lucky one waking up my little brother and seeing that huge grin on his face. Also you get to be the first person to open your presents(if your parents let you! )

Me and my brother usually wake up at 4am and have to wait until 7

If you are to wake up early you could get ready

3 Eat a Special Christmas Breakfast

Am I the only one who doesn't eat breakfast on Christmas Day?

I always wake up early on Christmas morning and make food for everyone and take a shower when they are eating and when family is showering I clean up after their food messes! It's the beast way to start the day with a good nutricous meal!

Bacon, eggs and toast


4 Watch a Christmas TV Show or Movie

The reason why I chose this one was because that it is a great family thing to do in morning but my favorite move to watch on Christmas is The Polar Express because it is funny and just one of my family's favorites

A Christmas story is the best movie to watch on Christmas Day (in my opinion)

The Backyardigans episodes The Secret of Snow and Action Elves save Christmas Eve.

I like to watch polar express on Christmas morning!

5 Wake Everyone Up With Some Sort of Loud Annoying Noise

What better way than to get everyone up to open presents with a startling noise. It will be such a startling sound that they won't realise it's christmas -they just woke up- and then when they do, they will be excited about presents and won't care who just gave them the biggest fright of their lives! Plus, it's funny for the person who did it

You could even jump on one of their beds and screen "IT'S Christmas" then run out of the room while they wake up in shock of what just happened

With my brother it is Face ID into my dads phone and go to the Nest app and test the smoke alarms they all go off!

My family doesn't like my death metal growling. It's time...

6 Honor When Jesus Christ Was Born

Christmas is obviously about Christ it is literally in CHRISTmas. I get people don't like looking religion and the eyes but you are going to worship a made up Santa Clause who gives materiel gifts rather then the true God who gives you life and breath literally holding you together at these moment.
I know Christ was most likely not born on December 25th but that is no reason not to celebrate Jesus' birth.

Christmas is not about Jesus its about Saturnalia and Yule. The church just hijacked it, killed the Pagans and turned it into Christmas to make it into Jesus birth. Christmas is not in the Bible, neither is Jesus birth date. Its just Church kills Pagans to hijack the holiday to make it their holiday for Jesus.

That is what Christmas is really about not the presents but Jesus Christ

Jesus Is OVERALL the BEST THING TO HAPPEN TO MAN, ITSELF. What is better:NOTHING. He gave us EVERYTHING we love, hate, like, and who we know. Without Him, we would be NOTHING AT ALL.

7 Just Sit There In the Quiet While Everyone Else Is Sleeping

That WOULD be the respectful thing to do...but, Why not just go and wake them up in some crazy prank to get them laughing. AND IT IS A GOOD TIME TO SNOOP around and see who got what!

That is always cool because it gives you time to think about what you got. I am always the first one up

Ya but I'm sure none of us do this

I LOVE being awake while everyone else is asleep. I feel like Santa Claus knowing when everyone's sleeping hehehehe I LOVE YOU SANTA

8 Sleep

I usually have a lie-in on Christmas. :3

I go to my ants and open my present at night thuog

How can I its chrismas

9 Shower

Shower before you go bed on Christmas Eve and a shower to end Christmas Day

10 Sing Christmas Carols

Who sings on Christmas?

I disagree. In my opinion, it's kinda annoying to hear the doorbell and u hear high pitched voices singing. Even though I'm under 13, this is something that has an irritation.
