People think I am a little bit nuts. We typically have a bunch of presents still left under the tree well into January. Why? Because sometimes Santa does not come until December 26 or Jan 2. And that is OK. Why do we care about an arbitrary date anyway? If you celebrate for religious reasons, no one really knows when Jesus was born anyway -- we know it was winter, but when? Does it really matter that all of the presents are purchased, neatly wrapped and all ready on December 25?
If you have kids young enough not to really care or notice -- why not do it? Change the date. Save some money. Relax and enjoy it.
Why do we do it? Because I like to soak in the holiday all the more. I need those extra few days to bake some more cookies for Santa or to make another gingerbread house. And why not? JIm, my husband, calls me the CEO of our house. I make that executive decision and enjoy it.
Just email Santa and tell him to come a few days later. Works well with the Gannon Gang.
