Christmas is around the corner, and we all know what excites the inner kid in us. Opening presents! As children, we're all left guessing what we will potentially get as gifts. Christmas and the holidays are all about unwrapping presents with family and friends under the tree. What could be killjoys in such a happy gifting festivity, you must be wondering? This Reddit user shared that his wife has implemented a new rule that is hard on the kids. The user going by username u/JonPM writes, “Opening presents are always annoying here. My wife likes to ration presents for the kids and have them open one every hour or two,” he writes as he talks about the spoilsport his wife plays during Christmas with rules and regulations.

Worrying about the rules, this concerned father writes, “I prefer to just sit down and take turns opening all of them,” and asks the Redditors further, “What's your process for gifts?” The question was bombarded with responses from several users who called out the mother for killing the joy of Christmas morning. A user replied in the thread, “One per hour? What do you guys do to fill the rest of the hour? We take turns to open, and if a child wants to stop and play with something right now, super. Completely up to him,” writes 0112358_ as the reasons behind the plan were not written for the background of the situation.
