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!

A few years ago I woke up REALLY early and I just laid there and I saw a red shooting star that I confused it with Santa.

2 Wake Up Before Everyone Else

Me and my siblings (mainly just me and my brother tho) make plans that we will do every year on Christmas morning and we're already working on ours ( just stuff like making breakfast, walking outside to enjoy the peace, listen to music, and we used to make a play /speech that never ended up happening lol) I love Christmas <3

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! )

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

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

3 Watch a Christmas TV Show or Movie

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

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

I like to watch polar express on Christmas morning!

Charlie Brown
Rolls eyes at backyardigans

4 Eat a Special Christmas Breakfast

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!

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

Bacon, eggs and toast

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

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...

My parents HATE loud noises and would be upset though.

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

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

It's awesome some people r 2 excited 2 sit ther you should go downstairs and check out presents and sit their not up on. Your bed

Ya but I'm sure none of us do this

7 Honor When Jesus Christ Was Born

Jesus Christ wasn't born on Christmas day, despite the name it's pagan, and I am a Christian, but you should still celebrate Jesus any day and every day, or at least think about him and discovering God if you're atheist.

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.

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

It is not about the fun in all the gifts and party but for Jesus christ.
